• 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:

Staying in Memphis Tonight, Darn Starter went out again

I had a cab driver ask me for frequencies of his company, he wants to get a small handheld so when he is out of the cab he can hear dispatch.

Does anyone have a list of taxi freqs?

VHF common in the 152 range and cabs in 157. UHF could be any where. Some have their on repeater on UHF. Some could be 800 trunking. Do FCC database search. One good way is use PRO-2055 signal stalker.

First order of business would be to:

1. Get the name of his company

2. Look at the antenna on his vehicle. Is it is VHF whip or a UHF whip. Taxi companies usually run quite a bit of power.

This information would help immensely
