I am back in Orlando now, but was in Anchorage from May 2nd to May 8th and found it to be plenty active. I do have a good story to tell about an Anchorage Police Officer and I know this is a radio related forum so I apologize in advance for being off topic, but I will be brief. When I first arrived In Anchorage I was trying to get from the airport to my hotel room with my rental car and took a wrong turn and was lost. An Anchorage police car turned on his blue lights and was pulling me over, I thought I might be getting a ticket, but no, he was pulling me over because he knew I was lost and wanted to help me out. I had no problem finding the hotel with the directions he gave me and I appreciated how kind he was to me!!
I was looking in the database, but when I load the 700mhz freq from the DB into my radio, i just get dead air in Anch, ER and Eklutina. Am I missing something? Also anyone know if Mat-Com has gone encrypted yet.
It's possible that 800MHz site was rebanded and you would need to manually or custom set the tables on your scanner in order to track that site.
I know there were a bunch of airport conv. channels that switched down 15mhz from 866 to 851..so you are probably right. I'm going to have to look up on how to set tables, I've never had to do that...
