• 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 cant seem to pick up the Ashtabula police at all. I dont know if anyone have had the same problem but its like they disappeared. I have my HP set to scan all of ashtabula county. every frequency has came up at least once since i got it except ashtabula city. Anyone know if they packed up and moved to a different frequency?

They disappeared about a month ago. No clue where they went. I saw a State Trooper out at 45 &90 getting gas and asked him but he said he didn't know, but he did say if you call them and ask they'll tell you. Not sure if I believe that, lol.

There was a thread a while ago asking the same thing. Apparently they moved to a fairly low powered 700mhz conventional system. They are certainly never heard on the MARCS system. I haven't been able to pick them up with the little rubber duck antenna that is attached to the HP1 but am soon putting up a rooftop antenna and hopefully can pick them up that way. I am in Saybrook Township btw, not far from downtown.

The 700mhz freqs were added to the DB fairly recently after someone confirmed to have heard APD using them (he was near RT 84 and RT 11).

This is a VERY late reply, I forgot about this thread. To this day I still pick up APD, A couple of weeks ago I finally put an tone for every time APD is picked up, There are times where I will not hear APD for a couple of hours and thee are times when I will hear APD every couple minuets.
