• 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:

The input is licensed. "davefirelt" above said there wasn't an input license he could locate. It's a mobile input frequency so it will appear as MO on an FCC license, not as an FB2, which would be the output side. i just looked at the FCC database and the input frequency is there, listed as MO. Whether they changed the output station class to FB2 or not I don't know, however the input has been licensed to Rock for awhile and it was reserved for this purpose.

Yes an MO is also possibly an input, and since our focus was Repeaters [None licensed] the MO is typically looked upon as a simplex channel
There is no distinction at the FCC between an MO [Input] and an MO [Simplex]

We now have the answer and continue to monitor, and also watch the Weekly FCC updates
