• 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:

I don't believe Wicomico has a MESIN TG tied to a trunked TG. I'll see if I can verify this.
I doubt they do come to think about it because they are Motorola and not EDACS and the MESIN is an EDACS network.

Ocean City has MESIN networked to the Ocean City & Worcester County EDACS Trunked system without dispatcher or console intervention. This allows all city radios to interoperate with any MESIN user without setting up a console patch. You will not be able to scan MESIN calls from other users without a dispatcher patching MESIN to a trunked group or conventional channel unless others also configure their MESIN interface to their radio system. MESIN is "NETWORK FIRST" technology from M/A-COM but is not EDACS.

In Dorchester the MESIN can be accessed through the NPSPAC channels or can be patched through to any of the talkgroups on the Motorola system.

This can be done on all the systems tied to MESIN.

NPSPAC channels 866.0125, 866.5125, 867.0125, 867.5125, 868.0125 until rebanding then subtract 15MHz. MESIN can also be patched to any local Trunked or Conventional Radio System.

dpm797,

Those NPSPAC freqs are also available for use in a similar way in the Balt metro area....almost never used, however. On a similar topic, any idea if the Kent radios are programmed with the V-CALL & V-TAC freqs (similar concept - just on high band) ? Cecil does have them programmed in. See this link for freqs: http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&aid=1632

Recent reports of NRP units using the V-TAC freqs at a boating event in Chesapeake City....possibly MSP as well.

To the best of my knowledge, Kent does not have the V-tacs. MESIN is only in the dispatch center. The fire units have 154.280, for Mutual Aid. Not sure about Sheriif Dept.

In the MIMICS document, "FEDTAC" is mentioned. Anyone know what frequency that is?

Since they seem to be suggesting ONLY a singular Federal freq, my guess would be the DHS / Federal Common freq of 166.4625.
