• 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 question is "do they have authorization from Westchester County to use this frequency?". And if they do have authorization, it appears that they are operating outside of the authorization, because on this license 468.1875MHz is licensed only for Mobile use (MO), not Repeater (i.e.FB2).

And the correct spelling is Tarrytown.

Being from Southern New England where Counties are on MAPS Only ;) , could it be the County did the EMS Licensing ? 2000 Units is a lot of radios.

And yes it's still ODD the other traffic being heard [Marine]

This has been posted about before, I don't know if they have specific authority to rebroadcast or got a wink wink type of arrangement. There have been numerous other Westchester Fire Companies that have refused to go on the trunking system unless they are allowed to rebroadcast on a simplex or repeater channel due to the expense and the personnel that are allowed on the trunking radios for their membership.( I know that in my agency the County requires a mobile radio for every portable put on the system) There are at least 4 that I know of, and there may be others. It was actually in the minuites of a meeting with the County and the Fire Chiefs some time back about allowing rebroadcast and or cross-banding on the trunked system. The County wanted to look over the rebroadcast design before allowing it.
To meet the MO type of operation, Tarrytown might be using a Mobile Repeater. Also I thought 468.1875 was one of the Med channel mobile freqs.
