• 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.

Looked in the database etc, can't find anything. Anyone know what the current PAC power frequencies are here in Corvallis Albany area, had a power outage last night would have been good to be able to monitor.
Thanks

Pacific Power

Pacific Power is in the process of switching over to an MPT-1327 trunk system. I am still trying to find all their channels because they are not listed on the FCC website for some reason. I have found some in the 151. to 153.7 and the 160 to 162 range. Do a search in these areas and see if you can hear the MPT1327 data channels and match up the ctcss tones numbers to what you might think are PP&L freq's. Good Luck!

Try using PacifiCorp as the ID Idon't think they use pacific power as a name in the FCC Database. I did find some after finding the corralation on the Wiki page.

So far the only one that is active is 153.560, I think, will have to try that search suggestion and see what I can figure out.

No problem, try using it as the name the ID was mispoken, but under the name I did find a lot of entries in Oregon alone.

161.8750 165.5 PL is the PP&L MPT-1327 control channel for Albany. The transmitter is located on the tower next to the Linn County Sheriff building in Albany. I know this because whenever I'm in the downtown area, that transmitter causes some intermod problems on VHF public safety freqs.

Also, 161.8625 165.5 PL is in Cottage Grove. It also forces its way through on just about every ODF tac channel when I'm driving by on I-5.

I recently moved to nearby Lincoln City, here I got a control frequency of 161.860 with Voice 153.4850 does the same apply? I posted recently and someone responded that P.P. is moving to a tetra system, possibly encrypted, any info?
Thanks

Ok , so there is no further information about this, should I just assume that it's gone to Tetra and no longer can be monitored, does anyone know anything further?
