• 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:

Over the last month I have been cleaning up a few of the states. My previous posting resulted in numerous submissions from local listeners. This week Ill be working on adding all the missing airports in Georgia along with Geo Tags. I just finished up with Alabama.

One of the main areas of the cleanup is the duplications of frequencies in the county, state levels. There is nothing worse than downloading a frequency that is no longer used or already posted in a dozen other locations.

I was also looking at the Georgia State Patrol section today and I have made some slight adjustment. Ch.2 and Ch.4 were duplicate freqs of Ch.1 &3. Having the 154.680 download twice defeats the purpose. I have gone ahead and listed the GSP channel lineup in the GSP Wiki. This way you have a reference. I am looking at also removing the following channels because there already listed at the State and National Level.

State - 154.90500 Ch.3 Sheriff's Network
National - 155.47500 Ch.5 NLEFC
National - 155.37000 Ch.6 Intercity
State - 154.93500 Ch.8 Sheriff's Network Receive
National - 155.75250 Ch.12 VHF Calling
National - 151.13750 Ch.13 VHF Tac 1
National - 154.45250 Ch.14 VHF Tac 2
National - 158.73750 Ch.15 VHF Tac 3
National - 159.47250 Ch.16 VHF Tac 4
National - 169.53750 Ch.17 National Incident Response Calling Channel

Does anyone have a heartburn with this? Again there already listed in 2 other locations (State / National). This would provide a smoother download and GPS usage for those who rely on it.

Keep the updates coming and thanks. We all benefit from the effort of ensuring the information is accurate.

Interoperability channels in Georgia

I do not have a problem with this being done, but I do request the nomenclature for each channel be listed in RR that is in the National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG) to help guide people use the same names for the channels, plus it might help to get all public safety agencies and radio shops to do the same thing. Examples are listed below:

AREA NAME FREQ. TYPE TONE MODE ASSIGNMENT OR USE

Nationwide VCALL-10 155.7525 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Calling Channel
Nationwide VTAC-11 151.1375 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-12 154.4525 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-13 158.7375 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Pubic Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-14 159.4725 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel

Nationwide VTAC-17 161.8500 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel*
*may only be used in certain inland areas at least 100 miles from a major waterway, with other limitations.

Nationwide VTAC-33 159.4725 R CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-34 158.7375 R CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-35 159.4725 R CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-36 151.1375 R CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-37 154.4525 R CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel
Nationwide VTAC-38 158.7375 R CSQ NFM Nationwide Public Safety Tactical Channel

Note: VTAC-33 through VTAC-38 are to be used for a deployable tactical repeater only and must not be used if VTAC-11 through VTAC-14 have already been assigned to coordinate an incident otherwise major interference will occur since VTAC-33 through VTAC-38 use the same frequencies as VTAC-11 through VTAC-14.

If a deployable tactical repeater is need to provide coverage for an incident it is preferred for VTAC-36 through VTAC-38 be used. Use VTAC-33 through VTAC-35 only when necessary due to interference.

Nationwide VLAW-31 155.4750 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Law Enforcement Interop. Ch.
Nationwide VLAW-32 155.4825 BM CSQ NFM Nationwide Law Enforcement Interop. Ch.

Statewide STWD C2C 154.9050 M CSQ NFM Georgia "Sheriff's Band" Car-to-Car
Statewide ICP B2B 155.3700 B CSQ NFM Intercity Police Channel Base-to-Base

*indicates this is a two frequency simplex system with mobiles transmitting on 154.9350 MHz and base stations transmitting on 154.9050 MHz.

There are many more channels listed in the NIFOG in the various bands for interoperability both at the State and Federal levels (some interoperability channels listed in the NIFOG are for use by Federal Agencies only unless local and State agencies have specific written permission from a federal agency to communicate with them on a channel). Please refer to the NIFOG for more information.

Hope this helps.

I agree with MTTA. When agencies I hear and work with use the NIFOG terminology it helps to have it listed as they do in the RR database. Makes it far easier to find what they are referring to when we all use the same terminology.

Also, did you get the submission for the new GSP PacRT frequency I submitted? I hear it more active than the one that is currently listed on RR, although the other 700 mhz frequency still may be used as well. Thank you for your very hard work on a very difficult task.
