• 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:

Just heard Princeton PD is now DMR and is not ENC. I have no other details and see nothing in the database for it. Just throwing it out there in case no one hears them

I listen to Bureau Co on 151.325. Periodically I'll hear calls going to Princeton PD through the sheriff's office. But you are correct, they have used DMR for a while. I don't have any knowledge of the color coding, etc.

154.7275 is a new repeater licensed to the County Sheriff. I tried listening but Im getting Henry Co Sheriff on 154,725.
AFAIK, 154.7275 wouldn't be a valid FCC split. They should generally be in 7.5 kHz steps in the VHF public safety band. The step above 154.725 would be 154.7325, and the step below would be 154.7175. If 154.7275 is the frequency listed on the license, it would appear to be a typo.

Got this message about 154.7125

"it's actually going to be BCSO's backup repeater. It's located at BuEComm."
I did look up the coordinates on Google Earth. I take that BueCom is at Princeton PD? It's a big bldg. on the southeast of the city. Look at the Sheriff Office and Princeton Fire is that the only station for them? I like how they have angled the addition to squeeze in the bays in the alley. All those years of going to the Starved Rock Hamfest at the fairgrounds. I never drove around town to look for those locations. Google Earth really saves gas :)
