• 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:

So, How Do I Change From Frequency To Channel? For Example: Los Angeles Special Tactical's Frequency Is:858.26250* But My Radio Only Shows Channels 1-22 +CTCSS +DCS. So How To Convert?

Yes GMRS and FRS won't scan police and ambulance frequencies.

"GMRS" stands for "General Mobile Radio Service" used by the general public for short distance communications. "FRS" is quite similar - another low power short distance communications intended for family use. For example a family being at a theme park.

Police and ambulance is another radio service, high power to cover a larger area with a different set of frequencies.
