• 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:

I have heard MBA on D-Fire-2 and D-Fire-3 before. They may be dispatched on the SB 800 Mhz TRS system on System 5. Not sure, but I have heard their dispatcher acknowledging calls on the SBCo system, so they may or may not be using it. I know someone who has a friend who works there. I will investigate and get back to the group tomorrow.

They MAY be on the SBCo TRS...check system 4. They are based in Joshua Tree, between 29 Palms and Yucca Valley, out of range of System 5. They have a dispatch talkgroup on the TRS, but I don't know if they that or the freqs shown on their ULS listing. Those frequencies are all new since I worked there. I worked for them a million years ago (actually closer to 20, but it was before 800 mhz), and they only had a single VHF High band frequency (155.205).

MBA operates on a talkgroup (4-MBA) that is used primarily on System 4. Occasionally you may hear them on a D-Fire channel or 4-EMS on an incident. Future plans are to move operations to UHF, which will probably involve the frequencies seen in the licensing information.
