    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.

Hey guys,

Adams Co. uses (mostly) MED 5 for the ambulance to hospital pre-arrival patient reports and other communications.

Anyone know the freq. for MED 5?

Thanks!

Hey Clint... this is awesome. Thanks!

I didn't realize that the Med channels were generic and not county/organization-specific.

I did find the Adams Co. page you referenced, but I have a question you can probably answer... What is the difference between the "Frequency" and the "Input" and why?

Thanks for your help!

Kip

In the database, the frequency listed as "frequency" is the high-power side of a system. For a repeater system, it's the repeater's output, which is all you need to monitor because the repeater repeats the input frequency's traffic at a high power. In a half-duplex system(commonly used with MED channels), it is the base station transmit frequency.

The input, on the other hand, is the frequency that portables and mobiles transmit to the base station on. You only need to monitor this if you are listening to a system that doesn't employ repeaters.

It should also be noted that Adams County sometimes uses Med-1 for EMS-to-hospital communications, especially in the Hanover area, where co-channel interference with York County on Med-5 might be an issue.
