• 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:

Got a list of freqs? I might be able to from Clay county. I know they've been active around here lately. Normally I just listen to Clay Co fire though for the same thing.

Ill have a look and see if i can setup a feed this weekend. That said it will probably be limited to what looks like unit 7, with a chance of 6, 8 and 10 due to where Im at. Ill also see if I can setup monitors for all the statewide channels but that might be overloading the limits of my streaming ability.

You should be able to hear the units listed, I hear them in St Augustine with no problem. As for the TAC channels they usually use 190 thru 195, they're assigned at the time of the call. For the common channels they'll use 1 thru 4.

FYI the Lakeland facility has repeaters in both Polk and Hillsborough as far as I know of. They can be heard in the clear for the most part even on handheld scanners with a good antenna. They can be quite active when there is a rural fire which involves their special equipment, bulldozers, Etc. They also have the capability of coming up on Hillsborough County's EDACKS system in order to coordinate with fire rescue.
