• 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:

Just got my first scanner at a garage sale, bearcat 855XLT, I have looked up scanner frequencies for LaCygne KS police, I see the generics posted on the internet, but I know they have others not posted, curious if anyone out there has any additional scanner frequencies not generally posted on the net for police, fire and rescue???? any other ones are appreciated too, if anyones out there, thanks for your help!

Well, Linn County does have a KSICS tower near Parker. I would say they should have excellent coverage for that system, but I don't know of any assigned Talkgroups for Linn County agencies on that system yet. I’m sure they will have a few KSICS radios assigned to them, but they may not be using them. KDOT and KHP both use the KSICS system exclusively now in eastern Kansas.

Bad news though, as agencies reband to Narrow-band FM over the next two years, your radio will likely not work any longer. If they switch to the KSICS system, you’re just completely out of luck. The KSICS system is digital which the 855 won’t receive. In addition to what's in the database, you might listen to 154.8000, 155.7750, 156.0300, and 159.0900 Those are all licensed to the City of La Cygne. One or more might be used by law enforcement.
