• 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:

So bare with me on this cause this is a question probably already answered somewhere. I am wanting to buy a radio or scanner that can listen to PSP (specifically Lehighton Barracks) and I am so confused by the STARnet system and what can pick it up. It is a lot more confusing than the basic UHF frequencies we used for the Fire Company and Local LEO's.

- Thank You In Advance,

Dillon, you won't be able to monitor them. Here is the page that has the explanation (below)

Pennsylvania Statewide Radio Network (PA-STARNet) Trunking System, Statewide, Pennsylvania - Scanner Frequencies

*** The frequencies for this system are listed in the database for reference purposes only, primarily to aid those who come across those signals while searching the 800 MHz band, as well as to give those interested a sense of how the system is laid out. THERE ARE NO SCANNERS OR RECEIVERS THAT CAN MONITOR OPENSKY, with the obvious exception of a radio officially programmed on the system ***


That said I live within Blooming Grove barracks area and because of coverage/problems with the open sky system, almost daily I hear them on old Vhf system 155.580 Ch.A

I'm not familiar with your area, but you may want to monitor the old Vhf freq. Leighton barracks uses/used. It may be used from time to time for the same reason.

Doctor:
The commonwealth uses a state wide system called Open Sky.
There is no scanner that can monitor this system, sorry.
It is a billion dollar mistake.
Check out the forums for Pennsylvania for the discussion.
