• 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:

does anyone really know what AMR's Freqs are?, i know they dispatch off 47.5000 in new haven, but what about the rest of the state?....i hear them on 462.9750 CMED with a pl of 167.9 using Charlie units in the new haven county and AMR # units in Hartford using a PL of 118.0 on the same channel, but what is their real dispatch frequency?...they are a mess and they have so many diffrent channels, they have a UHF, VHF and Low-band system.....

also, does anyone know Nelson, or ASM?....thanks alot!

I know an EMT and a medic who work for AMR, so I'll ask. I noticed that the Hartford area units have a talkgroup on the Hartford EDACS system. I'm pretty sure they are dispatched by whatever city's 911 center they are contracted for.

The 462.975 is CMED. We have to report to CMED as well as our local dispatch for on air, arrival, transport, and hospital arrival etc.

Hartford AMR covers the north Half of Hartford and is on 155.355 173.8 dispatched remotely out of New Haven AMR dispatch. The Hartford talkgroup is merely a patch of CMed NC 9 (462.9500 118.8) and the Hartlink TRS.
ASM covers the south end of Hartford. They are on the Marcus Passport system.

AMR also uses 155.325 and 155.2200 for other areas.

Yes, Aetna has the contract. I believe the two companies have merged to some extent.

Look On The Back Of A ASM ambulance & You will See The Call Letters Of The unit.

Not sure How Other services Designate/Identify Their Units

2 weeks ago I saw 2 Aetna Ambulances at the Wethersfield shopping plaza were radioshack is located so Aetna are in Wetheresfiled. Looked like they were at CVS (parked in the fire lane) for some sort of business as no sirens or lights were flashing.

Is Aetna Ambulance connected with the insurance company, or do they just happen to have the same name?

I think Nelson uses "Fox" on SC CMED.
