    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.

Does anyone have any idea of what the back channles are for Walker County? The fire department has been using "800 Tac 3" today at their fires. Im trying to figure out what the frequency is for this or if anyone has a list of all Walker County back channles or what they even are?

Thanks,

Jon

If you ran search on the Walker sites and didn't hear anything after the announced channel change then it's almost certainly a direct/simplex channel. A good starting place to look woud be the nationwide I-Call/I-Tac and new 8CALL/8TAC frequencies. I'd also look at the licenses for the Walker 800 sites and zero in on any 851-869 MHz range frequencies that are licensed but not being used for actual trunk channels.

Well, after listening to them for a while yesterday, I think that the "800 Tac 3" that they are refering to and working off of for fires is Texas Fire One. I am not sure how I would go about listening to that on a 800 frequency seeing how TF1 is a conventinal channle. I guess they just patch it over on a frequency or something.
