• 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:

My wife and I visited Parkview Community Church in Orland Park for the first time this morning. Upon arrival, I noticed they had some people directing traffic and they had radios on their belts. Didn't really give it much thought until, while we were sitting in our car waiting for friends to arrive, I saw a Jeep drive past with "Parkview Security" on the side, and the driver was talking on an HT. Of course then the light bulb lit up over my head and I thought, "Hmmmm, if I come next week, I'm going to bring my scanner with, and have close call look for freq's."

After I got home, I thought that perhaps I could find some frequencies looking on the FCC's ULS, but I drew a blank. Wouldn't they have to have a license to work security and traffic control and who knows what else inside the building? From the quick glimpse I got, they didn't look like FRS/GMRS radios. Is a license needed to use MURS freqs?

If we go next week, I told my wife we'd get there about 10:15am (starts at 11:00am) so I'd have time to search. If close call doesn't pick anything up, what would be the most likely frequency range(s) I should scan through to see if I can find any activity?

Thanks in advance for any info / tips / suggestions you can provide.

Well, my wife and I made it back to Parkview today. Sat in the lot before and after the service (about 20 minutes each time) and did come across a couple of frequencies.

464.500 (no pl/dpl) was being used for their shuttles to the remote parking lot. A search through the database shows this is the Business "Brown Dot" frequency.

Also heard was 469.5125 (didn't get a chance to write down the pl). Sounded like it could have been ushers or support staff directing people to open seats in the auditorium.

Didn't pick up any traffic from the guys directing traffic or the guy driving around the area in the security truck.

Will take my scanner with me again next week and see if I can get more information.
