• 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 heard from a little birdie today that both Skiatook & Collinsville were approached by Motorola & Owasso about possibly joining the Owasso TRS. Haven't heard anything official, and it will pretty much depend on how much DHS money will be available.

will keep you updated.

I can see Collinsville, but not Skiatook. Unless a tower(s) were erected on ridge west of town for coverage.

But if they were to do that .. why Owasso? They could tie into the OK DPS system instead ..

eh. FWIW.

I agree, I recently moved into the city limits here (Skiatook) and can recieve the Owasso TRS loud and clear on my UBC using the RS 800mhz antenna.

FWIW, I'd rather see both Skiatook & Collinsville goto the State system, but I'll take 800 anyway it comes :D
