• 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 was talking to a suoervisor in the Hickory call center, and she said they had switched to nextel. That was in December.

psol113-
1) no need to type in all caps...you can make a point without typing in all caps..
2) just because there is a dead spot in Nextels coverage does not mean a business will shun them...having worked for Nextel in the past I can tell you cable companies (including charter) do have accounts with Nextel....and Grog has a good track record here at RR.com and has never provided misleading info so I am gonna believe the info he gave on this subject...
Happy Monitoring!

FWIW - The FCC ULS is showing 5 conventional repeater licenses for Charter Communications that may be accessible from locations in McDowell County:

461.175 - Burke County
461.325 - Buncombe County
463.9875 - Buncombe County
463.450 - Yancey County
464.025 - Yancey County

The most-interesting frequency above might be 461.175 - Burke County. The license was issued issued April 14, 2006.

Although I haven't made any new entries for them in my log for almost a year, Charter techs were using an unlicensed repeater - 453.450 / DPL 125 - residence service calls in portions of Caldwell County.

I live in a charter area (Lincoln) but I've not noticed if their newer vechicles have antennas anymore. I know they used to have 5bd UHF antennas on some of them. Maybe I should pack one of my cars near the local Charter office with the "loner" 246t running a log? That'd be one way to see atleast if they are still running UHF.

I guess I have a homework assignment :)



I will add, the info I got was from a woman I was trying to date. It didn't look like it was going to work out, so I figured I'd get some scanning answers. No reason for it to be a total waste :lol: :D
