• 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:

the best way to find out is to put in the federal frequencies and listen to them and you will find out what frequencies are active in your area and what frequencies are in the clear.

What you could do also is do a range scan between 162-174 Mhz and 406-420 Mhz which are both federal bands to see what is active in your area.

Some are digital, check the list I posted just a few above this one, the ones in the 167-168 MHz range.

If you could use your scanner to search 167-168 MHz, report back what your hear, then list the freqs. and tones you hear, some of the readers here could probably tell you what you heard.

moonboy,

If you are in any way, shape, or form, authorized to program these frequencies into a two way radio, such as a Motorola Astro or XTS, you would not have to be trolling for them on an e-group like this one.

Wayne, can you do your magic with this thread please.

I'm going to have to agree here. I don't want this board helping someone program Federal freqs in to a radio they could possibly use to transmit on them with. If you can afford an XTS5000 you can afford a cheap scanner.
