    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.

Can anyone confirm Norton PD as having a dispatch on 800MHz? The frequency is 867.8875 with a DPL of 114. I have a feeling this is possibly for MDT use, but I've recieved reports that it may be a rebanded dispatch channel.

Anyone in the area to confirm? I'm a little far to pick up anything from there.

Thanks!

Norton moved their voice operations to 471.000 D-624 for dispatch a while back. They also are licensed for 471.200. I don't know if they are still using the 800 Mhz system at all. Generally smaller PDs are using CDMA or GSM for mobile computers, not dedicated channels.

I would post this at Scan Cape Cod as well. You should get a definite answer there. Too far away for me to monitor.

I heard them when the switched down to UHF. I can't hear them because there is a hill right behind the house in that direction and it is a huge attenuator. I have heard them when I was down in that area though, They no longer use the 800 band at all.
