• 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 helo in the picture is LifeSaver. 155.355 What you don't hear on that frequency is on SouthernLinc, which we can't hear.

Life Saver Sylacauga

Life Saver has a helicopter or maybe 2(?) stationed at the Sylacauga Airport.
The reason for that we've been told is because of the traffic on Highway 280.It has gotten to where ambulances can't make emergency runs to the Birmingham hospitals with out risking the lives of their patients.In certain areas drivers can't give the ambulances the right of way because there is no where for them to go.The only solution was fly over the traffic.
I can hear them dispatching over 155.355 but they are probably conversing on other pushes because I rarely hear them giving out patient's vitals on the 155.355 push.

I hear Air Evac 64 on 151.505, DCS 072 in Prattville. Some dispatching and administrative traffic but fairly busy if a bird is in the air.
