• 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:

    Can't Receive LAPD West or South Bureau Scanner Traffic

    Callsigns For CHP, LASD, and Fire

    I'm familiar with the naming convention used to identify LAPD units (e.g., 10-A-12) where 10 is the division, A is a two-officer patrol, and 12 would be the car identifier. Can anyone provide similar conventions for callsigns of CHP, LASD, LA County Fire, and LA City Fire? I hear them called...

    SDR and LAPD?

    Not sure which forum would be better but since I'm more curious about how well LAPD specifically sounds, I figure here is the place to ask. Has anyone used a cheap sdr doggle and software to listen to LAPD? Was it easy to set up? Any problems? How was it for ease of use? I mostly just want to...

This is the first time I've had to try to use and set up a scanner. A few weeks ago, LAPD and LAFD both dropped out when...

    LAPD SWAT callsigns

    Sorry, if this was already asked (tried to search, but results didn't show up — is this feature broken or is something wrong with my browser?), but: It's known that 10-David is lieutenant — commander of LAPD D platoon, and that 20-David through 70-David are sergeants — squad leaders.

    Scanners Going away?

    According to this article LA's first responder radio networks will eventually be forced vacate the 470-512mhz frequencies in favor of LA-RICS VO-LTE network (which has not been built yet I don't think). Will I be able to monitor LTE transmissions? I doubt it. Is this going on everywhere? Right...

    LAPD OVB Frequencies

    While listening to Foothill Division, this morning, the dispatcher asked a unit to switch to "old OVB channel 43 new OVB channel 42" The unit acknowledged and presumably made the switch. However, I failed to hear anything on either Ch 42 OVB Tac 1 or Ch 43 OVB Tac 2. Anyone know if they have...
