• 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:

Here is the license for Thomaston PD. Looks like the UHF channels were added to the old Low-band licens: ULS License - Public Safety Pool, Conventional License - WNID971 - THOMASTON, TOWN OF - Frequencies Summary

There are a few new licenses under Thomaston, they have three microwave licenses under the public safety pool -
WQSV401: ULS License - Microwave Public Safety Pool License - WQSV402 - Town of Thomaston
WQSV411: ULS License - Microwave Public Safety Pool License - WQSV411 - Town of Thomaston
WQSV420: ULS License - Microwave Public Safety Pool License - WQSV420 - Town of Thomaston

Here's the license for the Public Safety 4940 - 4990 band: ULS License - Public Safety 4940-4990 MHz Band License - WQSJ710 - Thomaston, Town of

As fro the fire department, they are still operating under the old Low-band 45Mhz frequencies as far as I can tell. I know they were looking to move also.

I don't think they did anything with radios on the police or fire end yet maybe they just got the license ,the reason I say that is because there are a lot of people in that area on a fire forum and on face book and no mention anywhere about new radio system in service! but I'll put the freqs in and see if I pick anything up!I'm close nought I would hear them

Definitely Rick, I would have seen something on the local fire forum also if there was a major change on the fire / ems side. As for PD, haven't read anything new.

55Enigne, which site are you trying to describe? Scan New England? The web address is not right.

Well isn't this ironic,this was on the e-edition of the Waterbury newspaper today (dec 26 2013)
THOMASTON — More than a year since the police chief rallied townspeople to support replacing an ailing radio system used by first responders, new radios aren't yet up and running.

Chief James Campbell said the old radio system, installed in the 1970s, is failing so fast he is trying to have at least part of the new system operational after the first of the year. However, the entire project isn't anticipated to be finished until March, Campbell said.

Thomaston has the frequencies licensed. Plug them in your scanner and give them a listen. Then you'll know when they start using them.

Heard them loud and clear on 39.96 this morning.

Just a little info i found out, the police channel 460.600 is also used by east Hartford fire dispatch ,I was in east Hartford yesterday, of course if you put in the tone code assigned to Thomaston police then it solves that issue.a poster on the ct fire forms stated the tone codes will be. Dpl 223, he did not state if it was for the whole system or just the fd channels, I would assume it's for all of them,they can changed them easily if the techs are picking up interference with a certain tone code assigned to a particular frequency.

PD 460.600 NAC 293 (Yes the default Motorola NAC) Not much thought went into that

No encryption yet but they got All APX radios and they come with encryption standard so we will see.
