The mission at NCTX-Scanner is a simple one, to provide the Texoma region with a website devoted to the Radio Scanner enthusiast! There are countless web pages out there covering various regions, States and municipalities. Our goal was to bring a Scanner page to Texoma. So here it is, NCTX-Scanner which stands for North Central Texas scanner. Why North Central Texas and not Texoma? well that’s a simple question to answer. So much of Texoma falls into North Central Texas. Texoma consists of Cooke, Grayson, Fannin & Lamar counties in Texas and Bryan, Choctaw, Carter, Marshall, Johnston and Atoka counties in Oklahoma. Then We expand to cover Delta, Hunt, Northern Collin & Denton as they are neighbors. What you really end up with the the Northern half of North Central Texas.
Our Missing is to provide a live scanner broadcast for the area, which we do via IceCast and the TuneIn radio website. We also bring a frequency database of the radio frequencies in use throughout Texoma as well as commonly used Ten Codes, Maps and other resources that most all scanner folks just have to have.
In addition to scanner info we also will bring in News, articles and technology information relating to scanning and some business radio communications. We’ll also watch and report on topics such as new Public Safety protocols, communications systems, repeaters and Local, State and Federal frequency updates.
While our target is scanning public safety and radio scanner tech were also here to help our Marine, Air & Rail fans so we’ll be posting articles and information on those as they are used in and around Texoma. Hey, I’ll admit that while I’m not a big aviation buff, the aviation activity over Grayson & Fannin Counties during the Bonham Festival of Flight air show was awesome! And fortunately we had the hottest frequencies plugged into the scanners and were able to stream the voice communication action on-line. So yeah, NCTX-Scanner is down on keeping Texoma up on all radio frequency regardless of the service … Well with one exception.
The staff at NCTX-Scanner has had bad experiences with Texoma Amateur radio so we will not be the source for local ham radio information. Check Repeater Book or Radio Reference for that. We are just staying out of that and keeping the focus on Scanners and Scanning.
Hey did I tell ya that were also into shortwave radio around here? Well we are! So look for news, frequencies and tech information about shortwave radio and shortwave broadcasts.
Some other interesting stuff you might find around here will be local stories about drug busts, Major fires and even Fire Department fund raisers. We like to help those guys when we can especially because they help us with good radio traffic during fires. We have a scanner buyers guide in the works a page on where to find the best software and from time to time we write about new products such as cell phones and stuff.
So be sure to bookmark us and check back often for new content. You can always email us with information or frequency updates and we even answer questions from time to time. We have a twitter account under NTXINN but NO facebook, sorry folks, just not into that! But you can hang out in our Photo Gallery, follow the wiki and eventually chat with us when we get a planned chatroom up and running.
Look forward to seeing y’all around soon – Thanks for visiting and please come back often.
