• 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:

Meriden 800 system question - Meriden Fire

Does anyone know whether Meriden Fire Dept will become part of the 800 MHz system?
It seems that with only a handful of 800 MHz channels and the fact that it's digital would
be prohibitive for fd use.
In the Tait promotional video, Frank Kiernan mentions that fire may be integrated into the
Tait system at some point.
Also, what kind of radios does Meriden fire operate? I assume it's not Tait.

thanks for the infor, been scaning theair waves ,since1955
wow dhp, I've been scanning since the 70's at least pd and fd. you have got me beat. although I will say, I too did use a "tuner" early in the day to listen to some stuff. it was a challenge but it did work. now, sorry to be off topic in the beginning, I'd hate to see Meriden Fire change as they've been on VHF for as long as I can remember, except for some low band stuff I remember too. I'd hate to see them go 800. but if they had the coverage, fine. but digital? nope that has no where in the fire department especially fire ground. but that's just my opinion
