    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:

Back in February of 2017, there was a DMR control channel on the air for a while that was part of a new DMR trunked system, licensed to Tualatin Valley Water District,
ULS License - Public Safety Pool, Trunked License - WPMG844 - TUALATIN VALLEY WATER DISTRICT

The control channel was on the air for some time, but I was never able to find any activity on the licensed frequencies. The control channel left the air a few months later and since then nothing.

However, on Friday, 5/10/19, I found a DMR control channel pop up on 153.905, which is part of the TVWD license. Looking at the control channel information on the Uniden 436 radio, it shows Network = 0, Site = 0 and Color Code = 0. This may just be a DMR test signal for now.

Keep watching for further developments, I guess...

I can also confirm that the control channel on 153.9050 MHz is coming from the Cooper Mountain area.
