• 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:

kind of strange considering there is a scanner in every house around here. People keep up around here. So and so went to the hospital. Even the dispatches tell you things like 2nd house past Joe B..... house. Cow out 1 mile past Jims house. You learn who everyone is that way. I guess thats why I cant find anyone on two meters to talk too. This is a great radio location. I hear lots no one else can hear on HF every day. I hear activity in OK City 125 miles away on the scanner.

There are a couple of "tall" 2m repeaters in OKC. Try hitting 146.925 (I think it's a "minus" offset, no tone). That one probably has one of the best coverages. You should be able to find some people to talk to on that one. Might need a beam though...

Thanks mark. I have a 3 element but only 45 watts so will also need an amp. I just use the HF. Seems like I got a direct link back to Corsicana and I talk to Tulsa whenever someone there is on. I hang t 7.280 to 7.95 most of the time.

That one seems like its down more than up. even when its up It is very bad on my beam. I cant bring it out of hibernation when I am in Elk City on my 45 watt R/S 2 Meter. There are 2 repeaters listed in My 2005 repeater guide but none here. If I cold just convince mt wife to get her tech we would be in business hi

I'm out here in Elk City, didn't catch the thread, howdy neighbor!! Set up a time on 146.76 and we can get together. I have it programmed in my Kenwood TK-270 radio at work, my motorola cp200 ht, and my scanners at home.

Gee I have it programmed in 8 scanners and 2 radios and I have not heard it in about a month now. I cant bring it up with my beam and 45 watt radio. I think it is only about 25 miles as the crow flies. Its funny thou as there is some guy that never identifys that is around Kingfisher that uses 146.52 simplex all the time. More than likely he doesnot have a liscense as he never id's. I am building a preamp now to try and bring it in. Will keep trying Jim. I know I need to be higher with my beam bbut I am only a Mile from the airport and dont want to take a chance. Perhaps I can catch you on 160, 80 or 40meters? Just say where and when. In the General part of the band. If you know CW I am out of practice but willing. CUL and 73

I'm only tech. level so hf is out. for now...

I try to monitor .760 at work, as it's a part of my job in emergency managment, I have a state issued 2 mtr radio in my office. But, I do have duties that take me away from my desk from time to time. There used to be a repeater in Cheyenne but I think it's down now.

I'll be home and monitoring all weekend, maybe we can get together and tie up Gary's repeater some...lol!:wink:

I will be listening. I am not sure now but when I went from novice to general 25 years ago the only different was code speed. From 5 to 13 WPM. I did nothing but code for a year before upgrading. I nearly blew it as it seemed sooooo slow then. Think it is 5 WPM now. I did try the repeater a few times yesterday and got it to ID but it was cutting out badly.

I was in Elk Wed and tried the repeater and did not raise anyone. I did hear an A--5--- make a call but I could not respond as I was in the process of checking out at walmart. I will be back in Elk on the 23th :p
