• 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:

Does anyone know the frequency they use? Im assuming their analog, (if so do they share the MD44 patrol channel) or are they on the CDR? Out in Springbank today I sat near a check stop today with CC on hoping to get their frequency but they must have never got on the horn. BTW, the check stop was a conjoined effort of the Fish & Wildlife, Sheriff, RCMP & Peace Officers. Never seen so many strobes in one place at once.

If it was Rocky View (they may have changed their cars from "Special Constable" to "PEACE OFFICER" sometime in the past year or so, which is when I last worked with them), they work off the 156.12 Protective Services freq, although they have DRS radios (what you're calling CDR, I presume) for using CPS's Records channels to do wants/warrants checks.

If it was Town of Cochrane, he doesn't have any radio system of his own, but he does piggyback on RCMP PACS once in a while.
