• 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 everyone, for those who live on the Gig Harbor Peninsula...

Peninsula light Company Dispatch channel frequency is 47.7800 mhz

It's a bit busy for sure. Anyone else have any other frequencys to share to monitor storm coverage? It's definitely prime time to listen on the scanner. Stay safe everyone.

Does 47.7800 have a PL tone?

I had Tacoma Utilities on during the storms. Didn't hear much, though, since there was minimal damage in the city.

This is the system listed in the DB as "Tacoma Services". As of yesterday, they were using 935.4125 as a control channel. I see that the listing needs some updating so I will be sending in a submission soon. The listed talkgroups in the db have all migrated to the PSRS Tacoma/Puyallup system. Right now the only talkgroup I hear on a regular basis is 3248 which sounds like a power dispatch channel.

There is or used to be another tg on there, maybe 3504? I think it was their security guards.

I heard 3792 last night but not enough to determine what it might be. I figure it is more active during normal business hours as opposed to evenings when I am home. I am off Friday so if it rains, I will monitor the system during the day to see what I can hear. I typically don't scan it.

That sounds like it. I was trying to go by memory; sorry.
