• 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:

You are hearing Katonah's simulcast of Fire 16 from the trunked system.

com,

Am I correct in presuming that since 46.220 is in carrier squelch when simulcasting TG 1680 that it's a one-way only link (800 TRS to VHF low band)? I'm gathering that it's set up for members with 2 channel pagers who, once paged on 46.260, can switch over and monitor ops while enroute to the firehouse.

SCAN,

I believe that's what it is, so that members enroute to a call can still monitor the post-dispatch transmissions on their pagers.

Scan, yes that is the reason. Yorktown Heights FD had switched their responses to Fire 17, but when they found this "problem" they reverted back to 46.26MHz. And actually it is 470/476MHz to low band not 800MHz.
