• 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:

I heard what may have been some testing on 151.400 with a DPL of 226. No voice, just what seemed like some random keying of the transmitter.

I wonder!

I wonder what they will do with their current low band channel? I have to say, even though Im glad they are making the move to VHF, their low band signal is one of the best I have ever heard. I mean the repeaters are loud and clear, no static nothing! Whoever set that system up, did it right. Again, Im glad they are making the move. I'll be monitoring it more now. Initialy they were supposed to have 2 channels. We'll just wait and see. At least with the VHF move I wont need 2 radios to monitor them. I have to use my Yaesu ft-60 Ham portable for everything else and carry my pro-84 to hear Ansonia's low band! I cant wait!

COOL!
I've been monitoring it all day today. Nothing.! Thats the cool thing about having multiple scanners, you can leave one parked on a particular channel and let the rest do the hard work!

You wont hear much yet. Maybe just an occasional test count. They are only adding one repeater for main police. It will be in simulcast for a time during the cut-over. Other channels being added are simplex. FD side is also getting updated but only backbone stuff, no frequency changes.

One repeater ey?
Hmm! Well, I hope that the quality of signal remains the same. As I said before, Ansonia PD has great audio and signal quality considering its low band.

39.98 is going bye-bye the last I heard. The reason APD is going to high band is to be able to communicate with both Derby and Seymour with ease. Also with the FD on high band already it just makes it easier for the PD to listen in as well.
