• 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 noticed there are some changes posted to Santa Barbara Co. in the database. From a trip there yesterday, I can confirm that Lake Cachuma (866.2125R) is still on 127.3...as were all the 800 Mc rptrs. the DB now shows a different PL.....can someone confirm these CTCSS changes?

All of the 800 MHz voice channels for Santa Barbara County are using 127.3 for PL. The frequency 866.2125 can be listed as Cachuma Lake Park and Animal Control-north county. (Animal Control primarily on the weekdays. Cachuma Lake Park primarily on the weekends...subject to more weekday traffic with the onset of summer.)

There are a bunch of errors in the DB for Santa Barbara County. I'm going to try to clean them up this week. Been busy with SLO and Monterey counties.

Thanks, Kirk....I was scratching my head looking at some of those tones.

And in SLO county, the Pismo Beach public works freqs look wierd too...they are simplex, but listed as different tx/rx. (the rx is correct, 153.845). I logged their PL as 74.4 according to the PRO-2005.

SB Co stuff is fixed.

Last I confirmed, Pismo public works had two channels. The 153.845 was repeated, with a repeater on the end of the pier (input 158.835). This matches their license in the FCC database.

The other channel (155.895) is simplex. [[UPDATE: Just looked in FCC database, and no longer see a license for this one...hrm]]

Perhaps the repeater has gone away and they're just using 153.845 simplex now? I live near there and can confirm soon.

The traffic I copied as definitely simplex, unless they were using talkaround on the output of the repeater. But these were just units talking to each other, not dispatch type traffic.

Good catch on the PL. Confirmed, and it is a repeater, just VERY short hang time. They may well be using the output in simplex mode.

I've updated the db.

I guess I should monitor the freqs in my back yard more often for changes. :)
