• 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:

I was picking up tons of skip last night, and I don't have a premium subscription, so I can't use the freq search feature with PL tones. I need some help finding out who uses this frequency. I already searched the FCC site and compared them to freqs in this database to see if the PL tone matches but no luck.

It sounded like a fire department, they were talking about "on scene, in service", etc.

Thanks Guys! :) :) :)

I'm thinking you're probably hearing Monroe County Michigan Fire...not sure of the PL, but the dispatch has recently changed to 159.09.

Oh? Why does my radio show a PL tone EVERY time I hear 'Monroe County Central Dispatch to 32 Frenchtown, etc....' on 154.370?

Monroe County is not on 154.37... they have 154.43 85.4 and 159.09 CSQ. Are you talking about Monroe Coutnty, MI? Cause if so they are not licenced on 154.37

KCChiefs,
Where on the FCC site is PL/DPL located at?
There is no PL/DPL search on the FCC site, you have to do it the hard way. What I do is when I find a frequency that's unknown to me, I look it up on the FCC site, then when I find a possible match I compare the PL/DPL that my scanner decoded to the database on this site.
