• 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:

Lawton Fire Dept VHF


Dec 19, 2002
Wichita Falls, TX
Over two years ago Lawton licensed several VHF repeaters for the fire dept.
I posted about it back then, got not replies, and the old thread is now locked.

Today I was at Fort Sill National Cemetery and heard Lawton fire dispatch simulcast on 453.400 and 155.7825.
I did not get a PL tone. I was not able to tell if all four VHF repeaters are simulcast with the UHF one.
