• 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:

Anything good to listen to in Chitna, Valdez, or on the way there, besides AST?

Anyone heard if the dipnetting is good?

Here's a Google map for Chitina:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=Chitina,+AK+99566&ie=UTF8&om=1&ll=61.516667,-144.436667&spn=1.569216,7.822266


For listening, I've only found the Chitina VFD freqs: 154.160 & 154.355
It doesn't hurt to also keep the Statewide Rescue frequencies while in that area, like: 150.775, 155.160, 155.250 & 155.280
You might be able to pick up an ALMR site somewhere in there too.

I've heard dip-netting IS good in that area but I don't know what time of the year is best.

Thanks for the info kikito. Well I just drove all the way to Valdez and skipped Chitna. Since I am still waiting on my cable from GRE I cannot program for ALMR. I had to settle for the marine frequencies. It was still good listening. I wish I had the Coast Guard, they were flying around. And the added bonus, we did pretty good on the pink salmon.
