• 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:

So I have scanned Dallas/Ft. Worth for several years but for some reason I have missed the Dallas Fire frequency that is listed as "Repeated Fireground/Admin" at 453.67500 with a tone of 131DPL. I am guessing I have missed this because it is never used but I was curious to know if anyone has caught any traffic on this frequency or if anyone has some insight to when this might be used since I cannot find any relation between this freq and the actual fireground freq that is our standard simplex.

It is occasionally used.

I've heard it in use on really large fires, especially those in a large apartment complex that spreads to several buildings, and escalates to 4 or 5 alarms. More commonly, I've heard it used for "special event" type coordination, like the marathon, some large event at the convention center, or elsewhere (Victory Park or Fair Park). But no, it's not heavily used.

I hear more maintenance on it than fire ground, On the larger fire's I hear some operations on the Back-up repeaters but the majority of it on channels 11 & 12. I don't even hear DFR using the Trunked system TG much anymore..

Are you thinking more of 451.1500, "Units to Shop and Major Incidents", listed as Ch 3?

The "Repeated Fireground / Admin" is Ch 4, 453.67500, and I have heard limited fireground usage on it.

Wow, didn't know that. always thought 451.1500 was MIFG and I generally have CH-4 locked out.
