• 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:

The Johnstown Fire Department officially changed it's dispatch frequency today. They are now operating on 453.7750 PL 118.8.

Testing of Cambria's UHF system has been ongoing with very favorable results. The target date for the switch of the remaining county Fire and EMS stations should be within the next 2-3 weeks. Further details will be announced as they become available.

I updated the 453.775 listing in the database...what else needs to be fixed for Johnstown and/or Cambria?

I'll let you know once the change over occurs. I looked over the database there will be some major changes coming.

What other changes other than low band/vhf ems being phased out with the new system?

I was referring to changes to the database.

As for the system itself, everything is pretty much set. There are some minor filtering issues with a couple of the combiners but this will be resolved in a day or two. Only other thing is a couple remote receivers have yet to come online, that too will be resolved this week probably the same time the filters are installed.

The next thing is the data side of the system. Site surveys have begun for extender placement at key locations. This is going to take several weeks. Once that's done then the build out will begin, then a ton of testing. Stay tuned
