• 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:

Is Washington County Fire still using their 33mhz frequencies as primary fire ops frequencies? If so, is there any plan to upgrade in the near future?

Would it be a safe bet to say that they will still keep the low-band dispatch freq for pages to volunteer fire departments but put all two-way comms on the new UHF TRS?

If so, do you think they will still simulcast the primary fire freq (units responding, going in/out of service, etc) over the low-band freq as well.
