• 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:

There are questions about how the rebanding will affect individual radios and scanners.


I've seen several examples of the "first touch" of radios that are in the process of being rebanded, and so far, every one of them has followed a very simple rule:


If the old TX frequency was above 823.000 MHz, it has now been moved down exactly 15.000 MHz.

According to what I've personally seen in the codeplugs of radios that have had their "first touch" in the rebanding operation.

I think what you meant is if the old TX frequency is between 821 and 823 MHz is that it has been moved down exactly 15 MHz.

This has been the plan right from the start for all NPSPAC band users and is the reason why the lower 120's had to be cleared before the approximate 240 NPSPAC frequencies were assigned to that part of the spectrum, hence changing the channel numbering.

The major reason for the 2 touches is to remove the old MA CALL and MA TAC 1-4 channels as once the licenses are updated the agency is no longer licensed to the 821/866.0125, 821/866.5125, 822/867.0125, etc. frequencies.

Hey guys, thanks for the headsup

on the rebanding. I haven't been involved lately with scanning and comms because of health. But I remember now that the FCC was going to do a reband all around. When may I as is this suppose to start? I for some reason thought it was in '09. Anyway, thanks and really like this forum....

Technically speaking, it was supposed to be COMPLETE by now!


But it's likely that it really won't be completely finished before 2011 or 2012.


Elroy
Some of the agencies that used frequencies in the 851 to 853 MHz range have been assigned new frequencies above 854 MHz. This is the first stage to clear the lower part of the band so that agencies using frequencies in the 866 to 868 MHz range can be moved down by 15 MHz. Examples of agencies that have been assigned (and are using) new frequencies include Coconut Creek Public Safety, Wackenhut Security, Miramar Local Government, Medley Police, Miami Springs, North Miami Beach, and maybe a few others.

Elroy and I don't agree often but on this one he may be optomistic. Nexthell and the FCC are not sprinting anywhere.
