    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.

Hey all,
I love listening to AirEvac dispatch on 155.325, but it's been pretty tough to figure out out my chances of picking up Native Air dispatch, or Ranger 41 dispatch.

Am I correct in thinking that Native Air dispatches by some sort of pager system, and not broadcast calls?

And I see a frequency listed for dispatching Ranger helos. Is that still accurate? I know DPS went through some sort of alteration to their radio system recently. What frequency do the Ranger crews get dispatched on?

Not sure about Ranger, but this thread details what frequencies to monitor for Native Air: http://forums.radioreference.com/arizona-radio-discussion-forum/163430-native-air-dispatch.html

I've heard Ranger 41 dispatched in the past, I'm pretty sure by Phx Fire Dispatch, but I haven't heard them for a few years, I think about the same time Halo 151 started flying. I'm not sure if 151 picked up 41's load, or Ranger is being dispatched differently now.

Halo151 stationed at the Glendale Airport is dispatched two ways. PFD dispatches them as well as the AirEvac dispatch. I have not heard Native being dispatched I've only heard them on PFD VHF 4 (mutual aid) when talking with the LZ Officer.
