• 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:

Last night 1845 hrs while operating at a stove fire in the Town of Hartford, Washington County, New York, we heard a dispatch for a department down south for an accident on I-163 on 46.38. We could hear both sides of the transmissions, and they were coming in strong on all the mobiles and portables on scene.

You're going to be hearing lots of that stuff in the coming weeks which is why most have abandoned Lo Band. That's why TV channel 1 was given over to the hams who quickly discoverd that 6M is the magic band but it didn't go far enough. The plan was to move all TV to UHF like Europe did but the station owners have been sandbagging for decades. Meanwhle we have OUR fun! (;->)

Yup, that was probably putnam county or chenango county that you heard. I live in chenango county and 46.38 is our dispatch freq along with putnam and washington county. I hear out of county chatter all the time. Putnam county shares a lot of the same tone combinations with us and when there tones go out my mobile will alert and start beeping. It gets kind of annoying after a while, but its always fun to listen to. The statewide mutal aid freq. on 45.88 is also a great one to listen to in NYS.
