    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:

Hello group,
I'll be visiting your fine state on business later this week and was wondering what to expect from the state TRS system coverage into Stillwater. Any chance of reception from a mag mount in a 2nd floor hotel? (Likely not I would guess but...)

I'll likely program in the sites anyway surrounding the county but was just wondering what the locals think.

Regards,
Dave

You may be able to receive the Carney site in Stillwater, it depends on conditions, location, etc. The Stillwater/OSU/Payne County information in the database is pretty much current, and I suspect you'll find more to listen to on the local freqs while you're in Stillwater than the state TRS will provide.

Thank you Mark,
After programming in the TG's it would appear that it is not a very loaded system as of yet outside of the major metro areas.

Reegards,
Dave

That's right, Dave. When you are in Tulsa you will get a lot of traffic, but once you get west of Lake Keystone the relevant activity drops to near zero. In the Stillwater area it's pretty much all VHF and UHF. There is a planned 800 site for Payne County, but like many of the TRS sites the state carries licenses for, the actual construction date remains undecided. Anymore, I seldom even bother to turn on the Carney site in my scanner, very little activity occurs that pertains to this area.

There is an 800 simplex OHP C2C freq that I do hear traffic on locally, so punch in 855.9875 MHz simplex.
