• 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:

I believe I am correct with this information. Metrolink is a radio system in Southeast Alabama, Northwest Florida, and Southwest Georgia owned by SCI Communications in Dothan. They lease space (airtime) not only to Law Enforcement but private business as well. Similar to Southern Linc but radio only, no phone service.

It could be where the shop is . A lot of things. A perfect example are TV stations. The license shows the corporate office . But the location are local. I am not familiar with your area .
It's probably just a record keeping thing .

SCI who owns MetroLink and Seminole Communication has these 3 sites.
L30-1 (WPTF226) southwest of Webb. This is the one that Houston F & R is on. Group 106.
It also has Headland PD & F & R on it.
L30-2 (WQNG317) northwest of Donalsonville. This one has farmers and businesses.
L30-3 (WPZN245) pager block no locations. This one has Abbyville on it. Weak in NW houston county.
Houston county DOES NOT have any radio connections with Georgia other than that the
owner of this site also owns 2 in Alabama. We have talked a lot about these systems and
have a lot of questions about users of them.
I ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY that the above is gospel.

Update on L30 system in Houston and Henry county Alabama. You can
do a search and see what has been said in the past about these.
L30-3 has Abbeville PD and 1 business on it as far as I can tell.
L30-4 has only 1 TG which I have not listened to yet.

joejo95, I will let L30-2 run today and see what I get. I've got my computer all screwed up. DSDPlus
audio sounds terrible and I can't understand most transmissions. I will setup my tablet and see if it is
any better.

Good to see you on here Mil. I have not got a skip from anything down your way for over 7 or 8 months.
Hope you and your wife are doing as well as y'all can be. We still praying for her.

Thanks, still need them. Some things better, some worse. Not much computer time now. I'll setup my sdr and let it run and check it when I can.
