• 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:

Paicoima was first up IIRC.

Some freq changes and firmware update on the Blue & White Motorola XTL 5000s and HHs.

One thing that they have started doing recently is using the V-1 through V-5 command channels on VHF repeat for incidents

Db has mostly been updated with TMAC changes.

Very few local frequency changes. Mostly alpha tag naming changes as agencies better align naming conventions.

Anyone know how to look up their VHF repeater licenses? I can't seem to find them entering them on the FCC database.
LAC V-1 WPVG961
LAC V-2 WPZM774/WPZM775
LAC V-3 WPVG963
LAC V-4 WPVG964
LAC V-5 WPVG968

They are Part 22 (service code CP (VHF/UHF paging)) "channels" that are licensed in a small chunk of spectrum over a designated area. Individual sites within that area and within that spectrum don't need to be listed. Generally speaking, and within reason, you do whatever you like with the spectrum within your service area.

This information pops up with a regular ULS search. I did a geographic search specifying the frequency within Los Angeles County.

The VHF system is a voted repeater system. Radio troops are doing field checks on exact coverage. I want to say there are 6 sites but I need to check to be sure.
