    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:

I read that the beeps you hear after Dispatch finishes a broadcast is the moblie unit speaking on the input channel. These broadcasts by the field unit are "masked". You have to program in the corresponding input frequency to be able to hear what the mobile unit is saying.

I have downloaded the frequencies available from this forums database via WIn97.

I hear dispatch fine but I almost always hear the masked beep instead of the units responding to dispatch.

Is there anything special that I have to do be able to hear the mobile units?

Thanks!

I am using a Pro 106 in Palmdale, CA

You can hear mobile unit on 486.0375.
Best results are with outdoor antenna or if your close to the deputy transmitting.
Sometimes they enable the patch and you can hear them on the dispatch channel. Mostly for working incidents or general broadcasts.

If you want to listen to LASO they use base and mobile frequencies. If you only have the base frequencies programmed you will hear what deputies hear in the car, Dispatch talking and beeps to let deputy know that another deputy is talking. You can program the mobile frequencies but they transmit much weaker and you may not hear them well. Deputies will ask for the "patch" so they can give out a crime broadcast from the scene area wide and will use the "patch" for pursuits on primary dispatch channels. They also use L-Tac freqs for local tactical operations and A-Tac freqs for area wide tactical operations if deputies from more than one station are involved in an incident such as a the termination of a pursuit.
