• 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:

for what its worth......

The base freqs listed in the database for the DC UHF trs are wrong. They may work for a scanner but not in MOTO radios....if it works in your scanner dont fix whats not broken.....but if you use motorola or you are just a perfectionist, then the bases are not correct......


the easy way to tell.....in moto systems, the base must be lower then the lowest freq used by the system. So the base and lowest freq being the same as shown in the database is not possible.... if you tried entering those bases in motorola programing software you would get an error code telling you the range is not vallid.....

1) Since this is a scanning forum and not a /\/\oto forum, name one scanner where the listed data will be a problem.

2) If this was a /\/\oto forum, since the math has already been done, rectifying the problem should not be that hard.

1. Im sorry, I dont see anywhere where it says this is a scanning forum but rather a "Forum for discussing Radio Information in the Washington DC Area" ...that would include moto, and a lot of equipment that would require accurate information to program. People using such equipment come to the database for info too.......

2. i was simply pointing out the error in a database that many refer to to program all sorts of radio equipment. and as far as im aware the math only gives possibilities but cannot name the actual base (needed for programing commercial grade equipment) chosen buy the DC ems.

Thats all.

Out of PLACE

immelman, your comments are out of place here, from reading your past posts it is clear you are are ILLEGALLY programing you XTS3000 to ILLEGALLY monitor the DC MPD system. This forum is not the place to support your efforts.

BOTTOM Line.. you want to listen to them legally, buy a scanner or apply to MPD

AND i can tell you that THERE IS no one from DC EMS or other DC agency, that deppends on looking at this board to program the department radios.

WOW......well, i guess im sorry for trying to be helpful. Im not going to get into mud-slinging, but i never said anything about DC officials using the database for there own info--thats silly. however no one can deny there is a very diverse group of people that use the database often.

BOTTOM LINE...the data base is wrong.

Moderator: if my comments are out of place, please delete entire thread.

Folks, if you know the real base and offsets... please do help out here.

Otherwise, keep your mouth shut and cut it out.

You have been warned.
