• 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:

    Houston Fire Department Pager Tones

    Does anyone have any information on HFDs pager tones? RR has them listed as EMS TONE TONE A 1500.0 TONE B 800.0 FIRE TONE TONE A 1000.0 TONE B 1000.0. What frequency are they transmitted on? What exactly do they use these tones to dispatch? Any insight would be appreciated.
