    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 hear what I believe is Albany FD on 154.43 with PL 146.2. I am pretty far away, and not particularly familiar with the area, addresses and landmarks I here reference to.

Can someone more local than me verify this is correct?

Thanks

You are correct. That freq and PL is used in Albany to page out the stations. The FD switched to 800 many years ago but they do their paging tones on VHF for some reason. The tech told me that the city didn't want to invest in new equipment.
