• 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:

If you're monitoring special events in the area, you'll want to keep an eye on some new frequencies. It seems a company named Blanchard's USA Radio Rentals is doing more and more of the radio rentals, and they're using some unusual VHF frequencies. (They've taken over the radio rentals from at least one event from Bearcom, which is probably the nations's largest radio-rental outfit.) Here are some frequencies found this past Saturday at the National Race for the Cure:

151.5125 [173.8]
152.5200 [ d143] "EMA to ___"
153.3850 [ ] Unknown if used
155.9100 [146.2]
156.5150 [ d114]
157.8150 [141.3]
159.2150 [ d624]
160.7100 [118.8]

Interestingly, some of those frequencies are public safety allocations, or very close. I couldn't find any kind of license for any of the frequencies.

Anyway, just something to keep in mind. I've posted this on Scan-DC as well.
