• 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:

Anyone out there.... please correct me if you've heard differently. Helicopters are not dispatched all that often. So you're not going to get frequent traffic. You might try some of the Florida frequencies. With the larger population centers along the coast, you might pick up the helos when they're up in the air.

In Florence AL. I never hear helos dispatched. I listen to AEL in Clornith MS and Wayne County TN. Those two dispatch helos just about every day. Can Hear ground to air communications on the fire department dispatch freq or on the county VFD freq. The county VFD sometimes will communication ground to air at 453.7500 which is a mutual air to ground UHF freq. I've read where city FD's air to ground will use the VHF mutual freq. 155.3475. Also might be good to turn off CTCSS/DSS tones for the freqs. The helos can be heard on local air band freqs communicating in local airport air space between scene and hospital.

You can hear Flatiron leaving Cairns field on Cairns frequencies. Check Airnav.com. I have also heard flatiron on the local public safety frequencies as they get close to the landing zone. I assume they still do that but I am not sure now since the local sheriff has went to nexedge! The local vfd may not use nexedge though. Flatiron is the army's Medevac that they use a lot around here!
