The frequencies must've changed. I updated mine from the database and I'm back up and running.

It appears that they switched to one of the alternate control channel frequencies - 856.51250.
Make sure you have both the primary ( red ) and alternate ( blue ) frequencies from the database programmed into your radio.
Chesterfield is back & working normally with the new control frequency entered.

Good morning

Is it possible the tone out frequency (154.160) has changed? I have not picked up dispatch or tones on that frequency since 9/6 however I hear hear the traffic fine on the TRS.

I guess everyone in Metro Richmond area only care to monitor Fire &EMS calls ?
Dude, you act like it's the end of the world,the system isn't even built yet! Don't go jumping to conclusions just because "they said they're considering it"

Well I don't think the sky is falling!! I am simply trying to stand up for the hobbyist that enjoy listening. If we all work together maybe they will stop this encryption idea before they build or purchase a system. I just enjoy listening and try to help when I can do so safely. I would hate for those of us who love this hobby to lose it.

I hope when some of the 757 areas start thinking about encryption I hope there is someone in that area that is as passionate as I am and who willing to let their concerns be
heard.By the way I believe Hampton PD York Co SO James City PD Gloucester SO have already encrypted their systems and the trend seem to be moving east.

I highly doubt anymore 757 departments will go encrypted, even if they did I wouldn't be posting every night

Obviously your only concern IS Encryption. I didn't know their was such a thing as a half hobbyist, keep pestering the "officials" and see if they don't encrypt all your Police up yonder, the 757 and Richmond area are totally different

You know I think I might have to agree with you. Because I live in Hanover Co where there is no encryption in the works per Sheriff .I personally Thanked him and told him that I would do everything I could to help him when he runs for re-election. I dont know why I keep posting about the neighboring jurisdictions. I guess I should let there citizens/hobbyist worry about it. Hopefully you wont have this concern. Good luck in 757!!

Dude for real, I also think you should give the anti-encryption stuff a rest.

I don't want it anymore than any other listener, but you are beating it to death. The hobby is changing from what it was. Encryption is possible for just about anything. The McDonald's drive thru could go encrypted just like metro Richmond, Tidewater, or the NCR. You may be drawing negative attention to the issue by posting about it over and over. Take the constructive feedback and give it a rest.
