• 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:

While awaiting a response from someone local, you could try monitoring the CMED/Emerg Medical Services freqs.

UHF CMED 4-10 seem to be the most common ones used for dispatch.

The problem in trying to receive the ambulances is that the channels are usually don't have repeaters. Hospital is on the 463.xx freq. and is usually strong since it has an antenna on the roof of a multistory hospital. The ambulance will be a weak signal on the matching 468.xx freq. and you probably won't hear it unless you are within a couple of miles.

No, but they use cell phones or other means of comms besides radio. EMSCOM is being phased out.

We still have the EMSCOM or MEDS channels on our radios. However we use cell phones now because of the availability of them, security ( with all the concern about HIPPA) and ease of use. MEDS is used as backups in emergency.

in my 6 years of working EMS out here I think I may have used EMSCOM once. That being said, pretty much everyone is using cell phones to patch with.
