• 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:

Help Please

Does anyone have a file for the Los Angeles CA area that I can take a look at. I am new to programming and although I think I got it I am not sure if I am getting everything I should be. I would also like to see if there is any differances to what i have already programed. I am mainly intrested in LAPD,LAFD and anything else you think i would be intrested in or should have.

Thanks

I don't have a file for you, but LAFD lists their frequencies on their website at http://lafd.org/freq.htm. LAPD's most commonly used frequencies are listed at http://harrymarnell.com/lapd-freqs.htm. Or the database here, at http://radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&ctid=201 is thorough and generally pretty accurate.

Emergency Trigger

This just came up recently on an LAFD thread at http://radioreference.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45699, so I'll just steal part of that and add a little:

If an officer needs help but can't grab his radio to ask for it, they can push a button on top of their portable radio, which automatically switches the radio to the "trigger" frequency and signals the dispatcher that he/she needs help and identifies the particular radio.

The officer gets immediate access to an RTO (dispatcher) who's not busy, on a frequency where nobody else will be talking over him/her. The RTO gets the display of his unit number, and his last known location, and broadcasts "All units officer needs help, 1-Adam-12's ROVER has been activated, 1-Adam-12 what is you location?" (or "1A12 shows on family dispute at 1234 W 40th Street...")."

R.O.V.E.R. was the acronym LAPD and Motorola came up with when radios with the help trigger were introduced in L.A. in the late 70s... Remote Out of Vehicle Emergency Radio.
