• 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:

Hi Gang,

I'm a new user too and I have a question about the frequency list here in the database for Alberta for the RCMP, since the database appears to be for the whole province.

RCMP K Division Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

What freq is used in what town, is there a way to break it down by city or town?
I did a search on the forums but search wasn't good ...... (grin)

Cheers'
Dave

You might get better response posting in Prairies Thread where your other posts are. Again, search the Databases under Alberta and look up the area/towns/counties and the frequency is displayed for those areas. For example, I am not sure if Caroline would show any RCMP, but Rocky Mountain House, Sundrie, and Innisfail, along with Red Deer are listed. I do not use the tones as some do. That way I do not miss anything when going from area to area and I basically have just programmed in the RCMP frequencies listed. Some people that live between towns that use the same frequency but different tones, find that entering tones helps. But as I travel through Alberta, I have never used tones. So to start, just program in the scanner the frequencies listed for Alberta and you will pick them up. Of course, there is NO need to put in the transmit frequencies if you are using a transceiver. This way you avoid the chance of interfering with RCMP transmissions. And if you are using a transceiver to put in the receive frequencies and have a transceiver capabable of transmitting on their frequencies, put in the lowest transmit power.

Tks!

Hi Robert!

Thanks for the note ..... I will re post it and I kinda figured I could just scan by town or city.
I'd like to think there would be a master doc showing what freqs are where though, you never know.

Thanks for the bit about the CTCSS .... I use them.

Cheers'
Dave
