• 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 have been trying to find the Colorado State Fair radio frequencies. The CSF had abandoned their license a few years ago and I was searching the databases for State of Colorado for licensed frequencies in Pueblo, CO.So far there are no active licenses in the area on these channels. I even searched by frequency (active below) for common threads such as rental radio shops with no luck and even expanded my search statewide.

The 2 license pages are at:

ULS License - Industrial/Business Pool, Conventional License - WQAK306 - Colorado State Fair
ULS License - Industrial/Business Pool, Conventional License - KB36152 - COLORADO STATE FAIR INC

Frequencies in use for the 2009 fair that I found active off of those lists are:
451.900, 452.275, 452.825, 463.500. Others may be active, but I am using an antiquated scanner (BC80XLT)
If anyone has any other known frequencies or knows about any license information please share.

These are freqs I have programmed to monitor, or *verified in the past; channel numbers (F#) are my own arbitrary assignment. Freqs are simplex, except for one or two security/law channels.

CSF F1 MAINT *06 469.0375
CSF F2 GATES *06 469.0625
CSF F3 ADMIT *06 469.1125
CSF F4 FAIR unk 469.1625
CSF F5 EVENT *05 469.2125
CSF F6 PARKING*06 469.2625
CSF F7 FAIR *02 469.3125
CSF F9 FAIR 469.4125
CSF F10 FAIR 469.4625
CSF F8 POLICE 2 *06 469.3625
FAIR LAW-2 *06 463.5
FAIR SEC-1 *06 452.275

Just because it's shown as expired doesn't mean they stopped using the freqs. It wouldn't be the first time some entity continued to use expired freqs, either unknowingly or because they weren't too concerned. As busy as the freqs have been in the past when I went to the fair, I doubt they gave up on using radios. Another possibility: with the switch to DTRS in the county, the city might have 'loaned' them their old VHF radios. The repeaters might even be still operational. Check for freqs in the RR database. Good luck, and let us know what you find.

CSF freqs.

I have not heard any activity on the 469.xxx channels for a couple of years. They are indeed simplex and were in use when I worked there. One of those channels was assigned to Production (concerts).
The 4 channels I mentioned (451.900, 452.275, 452.825, 463.500) are on repeaters and are active. I have not figured out where they are assigned yet. (I think admissions, security, maint., and admin or gates. I have not yet found the PD channel, but a couple of years ago it was someplace strange. It was also on a repeater, I think. I will check the SO channels and see if they may be on some state PD channel as well. I know the SO and Pueblo West Fire have migrated over to DTRS. The City FD has supposedly done the same, but can still be heard on the old analog freqs. City PD is still on VHF.

Thanks!

All of Pueblo County (fire, police, EMS, sheriff, etc) is on DTRS, so expect that DTRS TG's are being used.
I believe that the year round staff at the fair grounds use cell phones or GMRS to talk to each other, but that's a pretty small number of folks.

I hope this is helpful to you; there are probably others, but these are the ones I was able to identify.
