• 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:

My radio vendor has made contact with me to come in next week and reband my fire department radios. What will this mean as far as me being able to monitor on my scanner? What exactly is involved...new frequencies only? Would the tech be able to tell me the frequencies and talk groups so they can be posted to the database?

Thanks

Nothing really involved except setting your dept up with a new set of frequencies. Nothing should change in terms of being able to monitor providing your scanner will accept re banding, some do, some don't. The tech would absolutely be able to give you frequency and TG data, he is the one setting it up so he'd better know that information. Usually, TG's are not changed during re banding though, just frequencies.

OK..so I presume the old and new frequencies are active during the changeover then? I'll inquire as to the frequencies and see what I can find out. Thanks for the reply.
