    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.

The last few times Catoosa FD has had runs I have been hearing Rolling Hills FD Unit 700 get on the Catoosa FD side 800 not VHF and talk. Does Rolling Hills have least 1 800 radio? I wonder where they got it?

Catossa has a cross-band repeater. VHF to 800, the 800 service in that area is not real good. OakGrove Fire runs a cross-band repeater also. I hear all of both depts traffic at my house just fine on my VHF handheld.

I think the point PJ is making is that he's aware of the VHF/800mhz repeater, but you could tell by the audio quality of the transmision is was not VHF in origin.

Thanks Phil, yes that is what I mean. I am aware of the crossband 800/VHF stuff on both Catoosa and Oak Grove. However on this unit "Rolling Hills 700" you can clearly tell that it is an 800 radio and not a VHF crossed over. I just want to know if this means that Rolling Hills is on the way to going 800? Thanks...
