• 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:

Since 10-10-18 appeares to be offline since than after hurricane Michael destroyed buildings and the p25 trunk system. It may take 3-5 years to have the base fully operational. The other day I did see two jets fly over the city not sure if the aircraft freqs still work. I don't hear anything on the p25 system and don't see the control channel on radio and dsdplus.

Came across this article...

"Despite the power outages and limited communication material, the crew has been able to successfully restore connectivity and avenues of communication around base. The engineering team has been able to get the base-wide 'giant voice' mass notification system up and running, as well as patching up new antennae's and fiber work to get air to ground communications connected. The biggest challenge to completing these projects McWhirter said, was the lack of usable equipment and lack of power.

"The hurricane knocked out all sorts of antennae's so we've been scrounging around, taking them off damaged towers and putting them on good towers. There's no material here, so we are just trying to salvage what we can," he said."

Thanks for the info. It's very true the closer you get it's really bad. Mexico Beach is not very far from at TAB. One day I'll drive by see if they are using simplex.
