• 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:

Last night I was laying in bed listening to the scanner, and I was searching for control channels with the PRO 2096. I put one in, only to find out it was Chesapeake, VA's P25 800 MHz system. I verified the system ID on RR, and was shocked. I picked up the system at home here in Toms River, NJ. I have heard about people picking up California on VHF here, but DX 800 MHz? I was shocked!

Not a surprise under the right conditions. I was copying the Delaware 800 MHz State System from Cape Cod a few weeks ago using my R2500 and UniTrunker. Fun stuff.

The DX last night was incredible. I logged Ashokie, NC Police and Edgecombe County, NC Sheriff Dispatch.

Hi again,

NOW you have something to write home about! I missed out on that one, I was so crapped out around 5:00pm that I went to bed and slept through it. (;->) Keep your weather eye out, whenever a front moves through you can expect our famous coastal ducting to take place but not always so don't be disapointed if nothing happens.

Oh Joseph, Ashokie sounds like the sound you make when drowning. (;->) Well, Manasquan means "stream of the island of squaws" so now watch someone from NC get even.

One final thought, can you record tropo with duct tape?
