• 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:

Moving next week to Hamilton, I can find everything I need to program in the database, except the frequencies for Hamilton Police, and what site to program for the State Police in the area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hamilton frequencies

Hamilton Police primarily use 154.025, and work closely with Ravalli county sheriff, with a primary dispatch frequency of 156.225. The Montana Highway Patrol for the Hamilton area is in District 1 out of Missoula. The two primary frequencies used by MHP in Ravalli county would be dispatch on 154.665 and secondary car to car on 154.695. You may hear occasional traffic on other MHP frequencies but its not routine. Hamilton Fire dept uses 154.860. Success to you in your move and if you need other frequencies I am happy to help.

NIH freq

I actually do not have NIH frequencies, they are federal and not listed in most resources. I know I hear the officers check in with Hamilton dispatch when they go on and off shift....I will have to pursue NIH frequencies and see what I can come up with......

Bumpy, the R/R database shows state troopers also use a p-25 system. Is this an analog p-25 system using the freq’s you provided or something else? I have 2 unication g-5’s and a sds100 so i have the capability to listen to pretty much any type of system.

MHP-state-wide system

The troopers in Ravalli and Missoula counties use the analog version of the frequencies I posted. While Radio Reference identifies P25 state-wide interoperability system, I have not found it to be very active, at least not in the Ravalli or Missoula counties. In fact I do not even have it programmed in my scanner, as it is pretty dead. Other areas of the state and other readers may have a different experience with it. If so I would like to hear about it. In fact you will find some discussion of Montana interoperability system on RR, however, postings are rather dated and not directed at Missoula or surrounding communities. Again, I am open to hearing other points of view on this system.
