    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 am frequently hearing DPS Capitol Police using their new "Charles" callsigns on Metro Central. Can anyone around downtown Phoenix confirm if Capitol Police are still using 460.4125?

I haven't heard them in quite some time on that channel. I had assumed that either it is very low level, low power, or the signal was electronically skewed to focus on the area immediately around the capital, preventing it from reaching out, or they had stopped using it and just put them on Metro Central, where I was hearing the Capital units.

When I have monitored the freq in the past, I was only able to receive it when mobile near the downtown area. It was certainly not a mountaintop transmitter like Metro Central.

As I recently have worked in that district, Capitol PD uses "Capitol ###" and frequently Central units who use Charles will respond where needed.
