• 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:

Good evening. I'm going to bring to bringing out my scanner after a long hiatus. since I last used my scanner, LA county firer starter using BLUE 5 for some of their east county tro comms. Are they also using BLUE 6 or do I need to delete that from my scanner? Are there any tactical frequencies that are repeated or are they all still simplex?

Happy holidays

Good evening!

Blue 5 is now the TRO for the San Gabriel Valley (loosely, La Canada to Claremont, north of the 60 freeway).

Blue 6 is still available in the line-up however, and I wouldn't necessarily delete it. Just keep it in a bank somewhere in the event that it gets assigned to a response.

Regarding the tactical channels, I know that Tac 19 can be heard fairly well throughout the county. Unsure about the others though.

Hope that helps.

Paul
