    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:

Today I happened to notice Rockport Maine Police dept on 154.7925. I cant seem to find a listing anywhere identifying them as using that frequency. Anyone have any information? I definitely heard a unit identify as Rockport and when dispatch called him he answered with "go ahead knox" which is the terminology used down in that area to identify the Knox county RCC.

hmmm that is possible. I wasnt listening to it with a tone set. I was actually up in Pittsfield Maine in my truck and happened to change the channel on my radio to the st francis conops repeater and noticed a signal coming through. I opened the squelch and heard Rockport on there. Do you know if Rockport and Camden are dispatched on that frequency. You may be correct.

Rockport and Camden share 154.800mhz they have for a couple years now. They have the same police chief and respond to certain calls together.
