• 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:

Medina County Fair

Does anyone know what frequency and PL tone the Medina County Sheriff uses now at the fairgrounds? Many years ago I know they used 460.55 which was "channel 4" in their radios. The deputies could talk to other people working at the fair using that channel which was already programmed into their radios. For non law enforcement, the fair would rent radios from Rapid Radio Rental in Medina. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dave did you ever get my PM on SPD?

No...I never got it. I have read some posts that people were having issues with the PM's not working. Maybe I was one of them. I was out that way the other day and I did notice that the PD was still using citywide for dispatching. I will PM you with my email address and you can forward that PM if you don't mind. Let me know if my PM doesn't go through. I'm doing it right now.

Does anyone know any of the other channels??? i know that there's...
Channel 1 "Directors"
Channel 2 "Gates"
Channel 3 "Parking"
Channel 4 "Security"
Then there are three "Event" Channels"

So i'm just going to program assuming they are narrow-band radios.

MotorolaDave thank you for the information. Does that mean that police,Sheriff,etc will all be on 460.550?
Yes, that is correct. I was there the other night and there were members of the sheriffs office and other communities that they dispatch working security. It also appears that they have a very low wattage repeater now at or near the fairgrounds.

Try the search or Close Call function on your scanner, perhaps?

The Medina County Fair has come and gone, and for those members who didn't get the information. the frequency for everybody( except the carnies) was 460.550. The Wayne County Fair is coming in September and I would like to know the frequencies to be used.

The database is your friend: Wayne County, Ohio (OH) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

Also, as suggested before, try the search or close call feature of your scanner; you can find all sorts of fascinating stuff that way.
