• 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:

I know this keeps coming up from time to time, but does anyone know what frequencies the Freeway Service Patrol uses? I just see a piece about them on tv and the inside of their vans are full of radio gear. In additon, the show stated that they are going to be expanding their fleet in the near future.

Usually, they find stranded motorists on their own simply by driving around. They do have scanners in their vehicles and monitor the NHP talkgroups. I do not think they have any NSRS radios in their vehicles according to someone associated with NHP. They also communicate with dispatch with cellular phones.

I know the service units in the Baton Rouge area (aka MAPS) are tuned to the Baton Rouge Police department dispatch console and
they patrol the interstate system through Baton Rouge and and provide a valueble service

Yes, that sounds logical but remember it's government where logic often goes out the window.
