• 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 am hearing through multiple county sources that Prince Edward Co. SO has gone 800MHz, however I have found no licenses or references here on the forum about it. Anyone have any information on this?

Per the radio shop that maintains Prince Edward SO, they have transitioned to a P25 system utilizing the existing frequency of 460.2375. All new mobiles, portables, and dispatch console. Their P25 channel is patched over to an analog channel on 453.2375, which is used for interop with other agencies. Not sure where the 800 MHz info is coming from as it's not accurate.

FYI...I just checked PE Co. & Farmville. WQXX675 licensed for the county on 460.2375 mhz. was modified for P25 emission operation effective 02/07/2019. WPTQ657 licensed to the town of Farmville still is licensed for analog operation only on their 453.2375 mhz. and their other two UHF repeaters.
