    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 often monitor the City of White House police frequency on 460.1875 on an old analog radio. For the past few weeks, it seems to have changed to include not only WHPD, but also WHFD and what also seems like Robertson County Sheriff all on the same analog channel. It also has those annoying data "clicks" every 2 seconds now.

I'm hearing these unit numbers so far:
SO## - assuming RCSO
5## - also seems like RCSO but not sure.
6## - WHPD
and also WHFD with their units
EDIT: I also just noticed ambulance traffic as well


Does anybody know if WHPD has moved only their traffic to another frequency, or why they would suddenly throw so many agencies on a single analog channel?

It's possible they moved to a turnkey system and that the single channel you monitor is just a part of the trunk. You should check the RR database.

The database for this area has not been updated recently, and still shows only WHPD on this frequency. However, it does seem like it might be part of the homeland security district 7 network, because I'm hearing traffic all the way from Montgomery county, which is 2 counties over from here.

They probably got their freqs consolidated into that trunked system, they probably had the option of narrowbanding or consolidating.
