    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:

Recently there was a fire on the pike/Wayne County line. I heard the dispatch and fire ground transmissions on this frequency.
154.4525 pl 173.8

I checked the RR database and that frequency doesn't exist in Pike or Wayne Counties . Is it possible this is a new dispatch frequency?

Been hearing this (for Pike) for some time as well. Figure someone up there would put it in the DB with proper usage description. I am sure your post will prompt an answer.

Folo up

I think this is for Wayne county. The reason? When the fire was first toned out the dispatcher said Wayne county and then listed the units.

I would bet that you are actually hearing Pike County Dispatch bleeding over on 154.4525.
Pike County Fire Dispatch is on 154.445 pl 173.8

Pike Comm Center always starts a dispatch with the municipality name the incident is in, or when inter county mutual-aid the county name EX: any dispatch to Wayne County, the first words of the dispatcher will be "Wayne County" followed by the apparatus numbers assigned.

Keep listening to that freq. and you will hear the Dispatcher start with: Dingman Township, Delaware Township, Milford Boro, Milford Township, Blooming Grove Township, Westfall Township, Matamoras Boro, Porter Township, Lackawaken Township, Greene Township, Palmyra Township, Shohola Township, Lehman Township (all municipalities within Pike Co). followed by the apparatus assigned.
