• 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:

The Town of Clifton Park, Saratoga County is using Mototrbo, does anyone have any information on the system because it's not in the database.

I believe it is being used by the highway department. Clifton Park Highway used to be on 151.025, however, with Warren County using 151.025 for Fire Control I think they were getting blown off the channel. So, new frequency, new digital modulation. 154.860 is the new channel. I don't have a way to monitor DMR so I can't 100% confirm its the Highway Department but it would be my best guess.

That explains that. I've been hearing intermittent blasts of digital on that frequency, but nothing long enough to ID or decode.

So i guess when i here the annoying turbo noise on the town frequency i'll know whom it is....Also i would think they have gotten blown away by greene county highway as well from the south.....154.860 is NOT licensed for MOTO turbo.....only narrowband repeater...maybe hearing vermont again....?

Probably because the County wants to charge more than it costs to buy a few radios. IIRC, Clifton Park has no property taxes and I'm sure they don't want to have to impose any.
