• 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:

I'm new to scanning and was wondering if anyone could explain whether the frequency/license below for Chester County 800 mHz conventional is really "Conventional" or actually "trunked" (or to be trunked at some future time)?

The entry:

Chester County 800 MHz Conventional
Frequency Input License Type Tone CH Description Mode
856.23750 811.23750 WPHC705 RM Licensed FM

When you click the callsign link ( http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&action=fcc&cs=WPHC705 ) to the license information it says something about the system being trunked? What gives? Is it conventional or trunked. Is this a database glitch? Please explain enlightened ones!

Chesco trunked system

Yes it is a trunked system but one that is not capable of being scanned in the trunked mode (i.e. no scanner will follow a conversation, aka talk group id). You can listen to all the voice channels and most times the activity level is low enough you can catch the brunt of the conversaton. You can use virtually any 800Mz scanner. This is not a digital system. The fire board transmissions are broadcast on VHF and on the 800MHz system. The principal channel I hear in SE Chester County is 159.600.

It's an LTR Multi-Net system, which can be monitored in conventional mode by inputting the freqs listed in this database:

http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&sid=987

LTR Multi-Net can not be programmed as a trunked system in any scanner on the market presently. 856.2375 is LCN #12 (or the 12th freq to program out of the 16 listed).
