• 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 some type of radio testing on what is being referred to as "the net' on 453.2000 PL 127.3. I have that frequency listed as CHP OCAPS Metro. I did a search while they were talking and did not hear any transmissions on any other frequencies but they said CHP, CalTrans, Capitol Comm, FBI, ATF and State Parks were on "the net". Units were IDing as Air-21, RV?-2, CHP Central, Cap Metro, FBI ET?-1, 81-103, and Capitol Comm. The person IDing as RV?-2 said they were going through radio and satellite. Said they would be doing more testing tomorrow at 10:00 hours.

All and all this sounded like it was a good test. They had LAPD, CalTrans, FBI Sacramento, Sac Metro CHP, Baldwin Park CHP, LA CHP Comm Center, Capitol CHP Comm Center and DWR. I was able to hear all units loud and clear on 453.2000 from Downtown Sacramento. It sounds like they will be doing another test sometime this afternoon.

Anyone from any other areas (S. Cal maybe) hear this? Any other frequencies?

Sounds like the RRV is at the CHP Central office, I may try to see if I can find it and see if they will let me shoot the test this afternoon.
