• 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 noticed the same thing. I think I heard a Deputy who was on Diamond bar road on Ch 1, 156.150 the other day, so maybe they're on Ch 1. Have you tried listening there?

Anyone know if they use MDT or 4G computers in the cars out here? I remember a long while ago you used to hear what the call was, now the dispatcher just says "reference call #". Sometimes I will still hear whats happening if theres any traffic after.

Maybe the Dist 4 repeater was down for whatever reason. I just heard normal traffic on it after not hearing anything on this frequency for a while.

I think they do. I'll have to listen more closely to see if they dispatch calls the same way out there. The last time I head MCSO dispatch calls just over the radio was in 2012-13 I think ,unless the MDCs are down, or it's a priority call. When KPD got their MDC's I remember they started dispatching that way for a month or so then went back to dispatching over the radio.

Yeah I remember that. Do you know what frequency the MDCs for MCSO is on? Or is it a cellular data system?

Not 100% sure, but I think it is on a cellular data system because I have yet to find any data frequencies licenced to MCSO, or the county. I have looked through all of their FCC licenses on the FCC website.

I heard a deputy yesterday asking dispatch if "4 was still down".

She replied to have him "try it when he got up there".


Also, last week a Yavapai SO unit working an ATV wreck off 93 by the County line came up on MCSO 1 because that was the only repeater he could hit from where he was.
