• 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 think EMS. Only five mobiles. You would think they would need more for fire.

It could be a common freq for the Rescue Squads up in the county. That would be about right for the number squads in the county up there.

Most of the comm's in Colfax seem to be on the freq's listed on the colfax page. That 155.100 has been around for quite awhile but I rarely hear it used.

Ok thanks Matt. Yeah it's not shown on the Colfax page, and it shows it was relicensed or granted back in February. I will have to throw it in the scanner and see if its ever used or anyone talks there.

Upgrade, I get tired of people telling me that I need to upgrade. Why upgrade? Do I enjoy my current license? Yes, so I am good with a tech for now. Thanks for the push though.

What's YOUR callsign(s)?

How is it you can determine if someone needs to upgrade or not. Looks like techs can do a lot too. I think the cut off is like around 52Mhz and above or something like that. Hard to tell one person what makes them happy or not.

And if there isn't much activity on the local repeaters.. why not start some?

So you did pick up some traffic on it? I know that it used to be the fire/rescue freq a while back but when they got the 158.835, I took it out of the scanner. I'll have to put it back in. Come to think of it, it has been awhile since I've hear Schuyler Rescue call in on 39.82.
