• 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:

Looking for the frequency for B&T Towing (Wayne County) and also 313 Towing (Wayne County). Have searched the database and not been able to find those two companies.

Any assistance would be welcomed,

All the towiing downriver seems to be Nextels anymore. Even the ones that show having VHF or UHF licenses are just using cellphones. That may be where your two are.

I sometimes wonder if money could be made by coming up with a under dash mounted radio for Nextel and Sprint PTT. External keypad mike, external speaker, good gain roof antenna. Much better range than a handheld PTT cellphone, don't need to worry about a dead battery anymore, etc.

Gotcha. I got a nephew that used to work for GM Freight. His handheld Nextel was the same way, simply a two way radio. He couldn't even hear the other Nextels that were about and about, just the dispatcher. And like yours, no dialing out.
