• 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:

OK, I was reading this thread:

http://www.radioreference.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12078

I noted these points:

------------------
"Rebanding will effect anyone in the 851.0125-854Mhz range, and anyone above 862Mhz. There may also be some limited ripple effect on those that are in the 854-862 range, but that would probably be limited to those that have some frequencies in the other affected ranges."

"851.0 - 854.0 will be for Public Safety only.
854.0 - 860.0 will be for "Public Safety B/ILT Non-Cellular SMR" - which essentially means all the 'business' trunk systems.
860.0 - 861.0 is an "Expansion Band".
861.0 - 862.0 is a "Guard Band". I presume there will be no licenses allowed here.
862.0 - 869.0 will be exclusively for NEXTEL and other such providers (TELUS iDEN in Canada, etc)."
-------------------

So if the below are the freqs used by Topeka / Shawnee County then does that mean they will NOT be rebanded and our non-rebandable scanners will still work???

001 Primary 856.21250 856.48750 856.73750 857.21250 857.48750 857.73750 858.21250 858.48750 858.73750 859.21250 859.48750 859.73750 860.21250 860.48750 860.73750

Asked this in the General forum and was pointed here:

"Get the systems FCC call sign & go here for all info you will need, use the call sign checker
http://www.800ta.org/content/800mhz/tools.asp"

Checked Topeka and found this:

"No Reconfiguration Required for these freq's:
856.21250 856.48750 856.73750 857.21250 857.48750 857.73750 858.21250 858.48750 858.73750 859.21250 859.48750 859.73750"

"Public Safety Licensees Only Reconfigured (they can opt out):
860.21250 860.48750 860.73750"

So it looks like they will not have to change anything... good news for Topeka scanners!!

I was curious and looked up KSICS and it appears that the WHOLE system is moving down 15 MHz- what a job! Every tower site and every portable / mobile!

KSICS is number 1100 on this listing and has submitted an Interim waiver, meaning they will have completed negotiations to execute reconfiguration frequency agreements.

A Standard waiver will follow, and will likely extend the completion date into late 2010.

Topeka isn't on the waiver request for either type, but all three frequencies 860.xxxx will need a waiver.

Edit: it would sure help if I attached the link.
