• 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:

Does anyone have any word on what happened to USFS Law Enf ? They used to use 168.025 and now i haven't heard traffic on that freq in almost 4 months. I'm guessing the moved to new freq , but i haven't had any luck finding it.

I can hear the Willamette NF repeater here in Central Oregon. A little weak, but I can hear them. The locals here in central Oregon have several repeaters, but for the most part they use Deschutes County trunk for all comms. Usually the 168.025 is a talk channel.

Siuslaw NF uses it (or used to) for LE dispatch. There are/were 5 repeaters: North (Hebo), South (Florence area), Central (Otter Crest?), East (Mary's Peak), and Windy (Winchester Bay).

Most traffic on 168.025 was Siuslaw NF but Willamette NF used the "East" repeater on Mary's Peak if they are in range of it otherwise they used the other WNF repeaters.

What PL are you getting? SNF used to use 136.5 PL on 168.025.

Keep in mind to meet the new federal bandplan, all repeater outputs must be between 169.5125 to 173.9875. So there is constant change going on rigth now. Here in USFS region 5 radio frequencies are changing almost weekly.

usfs law enforcement question

Has usfs law enforcement changed to a new common freq? 168.025 has stopped being used in my area which is the Siuslaw NF. Does anyone know if they are changing to new common LE freq?

Here in N. Utah, Forest Service units sometimes show up on various Law talk groups on our statewide trunked system in addition to their VHF freqs.
