• 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:

Does anyone have any info on the system that the East Bay Municipal Utilities District (water) uses?

I can't seem to lacate any info about them.

(now, if it turns out that this info is located in an extremely easy-to-find location, please don't make me feel too dumb...) :)

They use 800 conventional and low band.

A very quick FCC search shows 854.9625, 855.2125, 855.4875, 48.26 simplex and 47.96 repeater output in the bay area (and 48.52 if you care about a repeater input)

855.4625 and 48.26 simplex are used in the Stockton and the Camanche reservoir areas.

In some mixture, these freqs should cover utility operations, customer service, park rangers, campground operations, law enforcement and fire suppression.

EBMUD maintains several radios sites with those three 800 freqs. The PL for all three is 110.9. Primary operations are on Nextel though. I haven't gotten around to monitoring the three heavily but they aren't used often. I think they're kept around for a backup.

Ranger services are provided by East Bay Regional Parks.

Ranger services for Camanche reservoir east of Lodi are provided directly by EBMUD. The "fourth" 800 channel is primary for ops, rangers, LE and fire with 48.26 used at the property entrance gates. Look for licenses in Valley Springs, Pardee and Stockton.
