• 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 haven't come across any information on Taxi dispatch frequencies in this forum or the databases on the site. I've heard traffic on these frequencies:

152.2850 MHz - Yellow Cab (FCC License Name: AAA CAB SERVICE INC., dba GREATER PHOENIX TRANSPORTATION)
452.7750 MHz - Discount Cab (FCC License Name: Total Transit, Inc)

These cab companies are usually the only two I use personally, so I don't know what sort of communications other cab companies are using. VIP Taxi has a pretty large fleet, but I'm not sure what other cab/livery services are in the Phoenix metro area. Anyone else listen to any other transportation dispatch?

There's a lot of MotoTrbo throught the 451-453, 454-455, & 460.700-465 MHz ranges, as well as in the 935-940 MHz range. I have no idea who is on those frequencies. (I don't have a real computer, so I can't go through the FCC ULS lookup to find out, if they're specifically licensed to any cab companies to begin with.)
There's also some Spanish language users in the UHF ranges, which may or may not be one of the cab companies with the Spanish language radio station decals on their vehicles.

Discount uses a computer of sorts to dispatch their cabs. They're the only one that I've used.
