• 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:

Frequency is 172.4500 MHz R (PL 167.9 Hz). I'm guessing this is an FBI repeater because of the PL tone. I'm not sure if this was coming from NYC due to all of the tropo I was getting from other areas as well. I also heard 167.3875 MHz R (PL 167.9 Hz), which is a confirmed NYC FBI repeater, at the same signal strength. Does anyone know what agency uses this repeater and where it is located? Thanks.

Just FYI Joseph , The National Park Service has been known to use that 172.4500 and PL167.9 in some parts of the U.S. That does not mean what you are hearing is not the FBI, I just wanted to provide some info you could use while listening to traffic on the frequency,it might help you determine who it is, it might be the park service.
