• 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:

We are planning a trip up to the wonderful city over Labor Day. Would like to know if there are any special frequencies we should listen to. I know that Marine Channels will be active, what about FD/PD and any others.

Thank you in advance

Labor day will have the bridge walk, so some of the EVENT TG's should be active on MPSCS. All the traffic on MPSCS is digital.

part of the reason we are going up there is the annual bridge walk, plus we just want to get away from home for a little while. I have a 396 so we will be able to listen to the state system.

Looks like you have the right type of scanner for it, should be a lot of traffic on MPSCS.

what marine frequencies will be active up there? I would like to hear ship traffic as well as the fishing boats coming in and out.

Thank you
