• 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:

155.340 has been a longtime EMS to Hospital freq. and is still used in many area's. Thats not saying that things arent different in your area. Is there no listing in the database for your area? If not give that a try. Some squads use cell phones or local TRS for there hospital comms, others may still use a telemetry radio. Good Scannin Hoser

nyyanx18, since this is the DC forum, I'll assume that you are asking about the District, and let you know we do not use HEAR (155.340). The DC hospital communications occur on the 800mhz digital trunked system listed in the database here: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=234 Other than that, you can also hear some Maryland and Virginia hospital comms on the UHF MED channels, which are still patched to the systems around here.
