• 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:

Keep in mind that 460.150 is also local New Haven PD's ch-5 for special events.

I notice that the CSPERN channel is often used as a hotline, since it has statewide coverage and every dispatch center has it. Is anyone still using 45.86? Almost every police department is off low band, so I'd be surprised if this channel is maintained.

A lot of departments still use this as it is a Base to Base set up, 45.86 was never intended for vehicle use. However the frequency was great for doing cross patches with the other department's radios. The idea was the since it was LO-Band VHF, the radio waves would be able to travel farther distances so other departments could hear them statewide. At least that is what the intentions were told to me.

not sure if it's still done, but I remember back in the day the roll call on 45.86 it was great there were so many departments from all over the state that you couldn't hear but you could hear them on 45.86. CSPERN is a nice setup if people wouldn't keep having open mic's . the coverage is great otherwise

hotline

I do hear traffic on 39.46 in Fairfield county. I don't have the best low band set up right now but I hear a few towns around the county. NH hotline seems to be a bit more active and CSPERN as well

When I was at Troop I, we conducted the roll call at 6 am. I want to say Troop K or C did theirs at 5 am.

Thanks BK that is the one I was thinking of. It's been a while for me begin in the dispatcher's chair. I actually checked in one night/morning with them after no one called in just so they knew thier radio was working. Talk about a "bat phone call" from K after that one! LOL
