• 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:

you may be a new user of RR and thus may not be aware of the vast database of public safety and commercial radio frequencies available at no charge to you. to access it just click on DATABASE at the top of any RR page. from that point you can start drilling down by state, county and user to find the frequency data you're looking for. the database is not the end all/be all for frequency information but it is a very good place to start. and just to be clear, there is no problem with asking your question and i'm not taking you to task for doing so. just pointing out an available resource for you to use.

this link will take you to the livingston county database page:

Livingston County, Illinois (IL) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

if you scroll down you'll see the frequencies RR has on file for pontiac, il. you'll also find the public works frequency for Odell. someone else on this forum may be able to give you more specific information.

good luck.
