• 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:

Is this still being used that is listed under Washington Mutual Aid. I have done a FCC search and all I can find is expired license or a current license to Nextel.

Yes the State Ops frequencies are being used. It probably depends on the area. State Ops are used quite frequently here in the Seattle metro area. The Ops frequencies designated for FD's are used for fire ground operations.

Each agency has to file for a license for them.

State Ops frequencies have been rebanded, which is why you see Nextel licenses on the old ones. The old ICALL, ITACs have also rebanded and been renamed 8CALL90, 8TAC91, etc.
