    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 can hear frequent activity, but, their signals don't seem to be very strong .... I'm in the Orangevale/Fair Oaks area and can barely hear them. (Using a BC246T w/ a RS 800MHz antenna) ...

The silence only happens every couple of days. when there is transmissions they are real strong. And it is only from 8pm-4am that there is silence.

They rotate control channels every 12 hours, I noticed it too on my "scanner" and then realized I had a wrong control channel in there, added the missing control channel and it works fine now.

Here is a suggestion.

While your scanner is "silent", take your scanner out of "trunk" mode and monitor the freqs (all unlocked) as conventional. If you hear traffic, there is an issue with your programming, especially if you hear the control channel.

Heard them again today, in the afternoon. Not much radio traffic, but did monitor Roseville PD for a while.

Well, if you aren't getting a signal, maybe your just not able to monitor it from where you are?

I'm hearing traffic tonight. It's slow at times, but its definitely up and running. I'm getting a strong signal from quite a ways west of Sacramento.

Current CC is 868.6875 - SysID: 7A3Bh.

I logged a few talkgroups:
