• 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:

SC EMD and SC DHEC have roll calls every week. EMD does roll call for county emergency management and other such agencies. DHEC has a hospital and medical roll call. These are on their regional talkgroups. I can't remember which days each does these, but they're generally 9-11am timeframe.

DJJ is active on towers near their facilities. I don't hear them active on the Spartanburg site, for example, but I do hear them on the Thicketty site.

PPP is active, I hear them calling in home visits on a regular basis.

I have never heard DNR active on Palmetto 800. Nor Forestry. I think they each use their VHF radio repeaters, though those aren't nearly as active as they used to be.

What is the schp frequency number for troop 1
Earl, I don't know if you are trolling or just super new, but almost no one is on a frequency any longer. They are on a group of frequencies (sites) and you listen by programming in the site and their talk group. What model radio do you have?

SCHP conducts a radio roll call on each of the Regional Interop talkgroups nightly at 3am. For those regions that border NC (Regions 3, 4, and 5) they include NCSHP dispatch centers in their roll call.

I am not aware of any other interop radio use between NC and SC. I would be surprised if there is any cross-programming of subscriber units between Palmetto 800 and VIPER. In other words, I doubt SCHP or NCSHP portables and mobiles have talkgroups for both systems programmed. But I don't know that for certain.
