• 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:

I have noticed that they do not display radio id's like every other agency does. Does anyone out there see rid's when these guys are chatting? I am on Long Island...

Thanks

Why does the Coast Guard do this? Makes it harder to keep track of which radio keyed up in an emergency.


All the USCG [P25] radios I have ever seen had EMERGENCY disabled. No need for it.

35 miles off shore, stopping a vessel, who ELSE you gonna call? Enforcement units, especially since 09-11-2001 are quite well armed. Everyone has a sidearm, everyone has a M4 Rifle, and usually one or more M240B belt-fed machine guns are mounted in their patrol boat.


Totally operational environment than your average public safety user on land!

An educated guess (at least for this area) is that most of the P25 radios in use are for USCG AUX training.

Every now and then I'll see valid RIDs (in the 137xxxx & 58xxxxx range) but it's pretty rare.

P25 is in regular use on USCG non-156/157 frequencies (that is, it is used for the 162-174 MHz frequencies).

More for of if they reported a mayday, and then went down (aircraft) or started taking on water and capsized (vessel). At least someone might know what radio it was. Has nothing to do with weapons at all...

The only 2 I ever logged were in the 137xxxx range.
