I’m putting together my notes on CBP/ICE frequencies, and I’m hoping to get some conversation started to help fill in the gaps. I’m finding that CBP/ICE are encrypted about 80% of the time. However, I hear enough unencrypted stuff to identify some channels. I regularly hear channels identified as “Vote Scan X” or “VSX” for short.

Here are some of the main frequencies used in the Phoenix Area. The freqs listed under the channel are linked together and the same radio traffic is heard on all frequencies simultaneously.
Channel: VS5 (Vote Scan 5)
166.8500 NAC 310
172.7125 NAC 310
173.6125 NAC 310

Channel: VS14 (Vote Scan 14)
170.3500 NAC 340
171.2125 NAC 340
173.9375 NAC 340

Unknown Channel Name
170.3375 NAC670
173.0500 NAC670

Unknown Channel Name
168.0875 NAC 710
168.8250 NAC 710
172.2375 NAC 710



I have also read reference in the forums of VS12 172.4125 that is used north of Phoenix, but I have never heard anything. I have some more freqs that I will post after I put my notes together.

What are some other VSX (Vote Scan X) frequencies that you have monitored?

I believe it's VS5 that I've heard both an MCSO 500K-series deputy and a BLM LEO (BLM 200, IIRC) in the clear on.

Today I heard "BLM 200" on 173.100 NAC 305 (CBP Florence repeater) transmitting in the clear. I'm glad to see that government agencies are working together and sharing frequencies.

The reason they go clear is that they interoperate with other agencies and the feds are not willing to give them all their keys only what they call interop keys which most agents can't figure out how to use so they just go clear. WORKS FOR ME!
