• 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:

NEVER heard a tone out on 154.2800 PL 123.0! IT WASN'T BERGEN COUNTY, get it out of you skull. They're toning on it. I think I just heard HERNDON, VIRGINIA................prove me wrong

I certainly believe that, 30 years ago, I was an LEO in the Orlando area. All of our systems operated on 155 Mhz. It was common for us to listen to a P.D. who's dispatch frequency was the same as our assigned freq. on our TRI Cities channel. It was on our Mobiles in our vehicles. They were on the Georgia border in Nassau County Florida, a three hour drive from the Orlando area. I always thought that was pretty cool. So, yeah, I believe you. Take care.

I can tell you 100% it is not Herndon, VA. They have been on a P25 TRS for more than 15 years. Longer than I've been scanning the area. Fire was dispatched was orginally via the county anyways on 460.575 which was simulcasted until Oct 2008.

154.28 licenses in this area were only for mutual aid.
