• 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:

Hello,

Does Brooke County Sheriff still use 154.845 the most or do they use another frequency? I was just wondering because I never hear the law enforcement however I can hear the fire frequency as clear as a bell. Also is there a frequency for Bethany Campus Police?
Thanks for the help.

Was still hearing them on 845 as of yesterday. It is a flamethrower to me. I will check when I get home

154.845 is still as of this date, the primary sheriff dispatch channel but they do use Brooke Law on the IRP a good bit, especially by the sheriff, chief deputy, and unit #3... What I find crazy is that per Mule1075, that frequency is a flamethrower at his location in Washington County yet on my radios, in Brilliant (directly across the river from Wellsburg) and even on the hill in Weirton, the users are extremely quiet and the frequency is always filled with a ridiculous amount of static to the point that it is very difficult to discern what is being said... It never used to be like that and like you say, fire is still loud and clear on UHF......
