• 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:

Anyone ever heard the Lexington P25s?

...On 471.1875Mhz or 474.1875MHz? I have them programmed into my PSR500 and have never picked up a thing from them, even when I'm within a few mile range of Lexington.

I hear them, although not a lot since I'm not in that area. I don't think they had a really strong signal even when they were on analog.

I am 15 miles away and getting them loud and clear tonight on 471.1875 with a PRO-96 and a ham 2m/440 rubber duck. I'm not familiar with the psr-500 but you should check your settings.Make sure you don't have dcs or ctcss turned on.

Lexington has never had a strong signal to my quarters (which isn't too far away); I suspect it is site-related, as back when Lexington PD was on 155.535, they would sometimes be wiped out by Hillsboro County on 155.52.

That said, their Astro signal is loud and clear here. The reason why one doesn't hear much is that they use the MDT for most routine dispatch.

Sorry to bring this thread back from the crypt...I downloaded the M'sex county PS freqs from the RR database and didn't notice that Lex PD was digital. I heard them on the scanner and thought "darn, that has that digital sound." I looked it up and sure enough, P25. It really does sound different - and I'm only two towns away with a good strong signal.
