• 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:

Monterey County has a P25 phase 1 700MHz system. Best way to listen to that is with a P25 capable scanner.
They do still use VHF pretty heavily. You can program the VHF frequencies into your new dual band radio to listen in on those.

Not sure what the status is on the 700MHz P25 system. Last time I was down at their shop, it was running, but in a limited way. Not sure they've ever really put it to full use. It's been "in process" for a long time now.

Frequencies for all the Monterey County agencies can be found here: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=209 and Monterey County Public Safety System Trunking System, Salinas, California - Scanner Frequencies

I have 4 sites log already but the problem is they keep changing the frequencies at the sites. They did a test last week it sounded nice both on VHF and 700mhz. they're going to do a another test some time next week. I need help logging the sites on the peninsula if anyone can help me out that would be nice.And Salinas PD said they want to go encrypted so don't be surprised.

I'm interested in sharing info for the Monterey-Santa Cruz area. Is there a group? Or interest in forming one? Would that work better than random threads? Or?

I'd suggest starting a new thread.

Also, I'm the telecom/radio engineer for UCSC and live in Watsonville, so I'd be happy to offer up what I have that can be shared. I went through the Santa Cruz County database page a few years back and had them bring it up to match the most recent data. Should still be pretty close.

Please start a new thread. It's good to know others around the area have interest. I'm just starting in ham. I was originally asking because I heard the repeater club has a p25 system where they use HTs.
