• 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:

Des Arc / Prairie County

If anyone lives close to Des Arc, it appears that the database information for Prairie County is outdated. First of all, according to their FCC license, the sheriff's office is licensed for DMR on 155.040 but this does not show in the database. There is also a sheriff's department frequency of 158.8575 which is not in the database (also licensed for DMR, incidentally). Devall's Bluff seems to have a volunteer fire frequency of 155.6925 DMR, Georgetown volunteer fire has an NXDN license for 460.550, "Prairie County Judge" has licenses for 155.130 and 154.8825, and Prairie County fire dispatch on 155.8650 is licensed for NFM as well as DMR. None of this appears in the Prairie County database page. Can anyone close do some RF sniffing around there?

We do know PCSO at least also runs on AWIN. But yes, reconfirmation of what else is going on down there would be appreciated.
