    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:

On a drive down to Gloucester this past Sunday, I caught 155.3400 [ 82.5] in use while passing through Tappahannock. Both the ambulance and the hospital were coming in strong. The callsign given at the end of the transmission sounded like WXP396, but that doesn't come back as either active or expired in the FCC database. Can anyone confirm that this is Riverside Tappahannock?

Thanks,
Dave

Yep, 82.5 is used by Riverside Tapp. There is inconsistency among hospitals though sometimes....Some hospitals in Richmond don't encode a PL tone, but all are setup to decode a particular tone, along with a pulsed/DTMF sequence.

It's interesting that the hospital encodes a tone in this case.

We used to test the UVa hospital system by dialing up MCV in Richmond. I doubt anybody still has those old dialers, I know they don't around here anyway.
