• 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:

460.300, Monroe Co. No. East- Am I hearing DMR?

Pike County, Pennsylvania
I normally monitor 460.300 [662DPL] Monroe County Fire North East on two scanners.

This morning around 0900, for the first time, I'm hearing what sounds like DMR traffic.

My BC355N with no PL/DPL capability is buzzing away often with what sounds like DMR traffic.

My HP-1 is set to 662DPL and is silent.

The database shows no users in PA/NY/NJ close to my location and I've never heard any other traffic on this frequency except MC Fire

MC FCC ULS indicates emmission designators 11K2 F3E (analog) and 11K2F1D and 11K2F2D

Any ideas?

Fire Northeast is straight analog. I monitor NE all day, everyday and haven't picked up anything different. Maybe you were picking up something else on the same frequency from somewhere else? The only other thing I could tell you is some local fire companies are starting to purchase Motorola XPR portables and the pre-tone has a digital type sound to it.
