• 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'm told this is a simplex 453 freq - so it's not one of the digital 470 channels.

However, this is the first time I can recall I've heard this... and I've listened for a long long time. Yes, planned events may use this freq, but I've never heard of a non-planned event using it.

Werinshades, has it begun?

No not yet sixty-two...don't panic...LOL ! Their has been some problems with the EMS Command Channel documented during large-scale events. They are now reccomending we utilize Special Events 5 during EMS Plans etc. Yes I hate to say this too, but do to the fact it's low-powered and the bosses know it, means the press can't be listening...heard this from a white shirt. Info is in RR Database.
