• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I listen to it every day. I get great reception for ground control for about a mile out, then it slowly goes down hill. I have no problems with any of the other approach / departure freqs. Matter of fact I live in Cold Springs and hear them just fine. Reno is a military layover airport so there are lots of them coming and going. If you listen to the ARTCC's you will get hits from planes going and coming from NAS Fallon (Top Gun), Nellis AFB (Red Flag) Travis AFB, Beale AFB and many others. I just got my eighty fifth milair hit yesterday. This is a great area to monitor civil and milair activity!

I am willing to help in any way!

I was in Sparks this weekend and got the airport perfectly. I was on the 9th floor of the Nugget, so that probably helped a tad bit ;) . On Thursday I programmed in the EDACS system for the Reno area. First time I've tried an EDACS system, but it worked just fine. In fact, I didn't even need an antenna with my Pro-97. I was switching antennas at one point to see if my other would pick up anything better, and I still received transmissions just fine between the switch. So, I put the antennas away and just kept the scanner on the desk.
