• 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:

Should be the 155.490 freq Chris listed. This is used throughout the north-central PA area including the following counties:

Tioga
Potter
Clinton
Lycoming
Centre
Union
Northumberland
Snyder
Juniata

I think all the SEDA COG counties and some counties surrounding that area use this frequency as a regional police coordination channel.

Some history on the regional coordination effort (rare in PA) can be found here:

Southwest Regional is a talkgroup on the Opensky system. Stick your head in a PSP car around the Harrisburg area (with the trooper's permission of course) and see for yourself. Its what all the PSP Opensky radios around this area seem to be on.

Well, there ya go. Sounds good to me. When I first replied, I completely glossed over the "Southwest" and just saw "Regional" which is what everybody in NC PA calls 155.490.


Of course, this begs the question as to what "Southwest Regional" refers to...certainly not SW PA if it is being used in the Harrisburg and State College areas. Who knows...doesn't much matter since we can't hear anything anyway. Damn you OpenSky!

Maybe the Troop region?
