• 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:

Heard the tail end of a convo on 455.725 with a PL of 156.7 while searching the media band around 4:45. Searched RR and the FCC database and was unable to find any matches. Anyone know who this might be? (I'm assuming it's a media outlet somewhere in or around Philly)

I listened today and this sounds like a simplex frequency being used by Chopper 6 to talk to the the Channel 6 news desk (WPVI, ABC Philly station).

Channel 6 uses a 156.7 PL on other frequencies. I haven't heard Chopper 6 on their old freq in a while and maybe this is why.
