• 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:

Guys, got a good one here. I'm a police officer with a eastern suburb department just outside of Pittsburgh. On 1 January we switched from Forest Hills dispatch (154.995 I think) to 154.860, PL 131.8.

Several other departments in my area share this frequency-everthing from traffic stops to radio calls. Several weeks ago I began hearing police comms on our assigned frequency, knew it was regional, but unable to copy a station callsign as we are one to a car, and often busy.

I work the 2300-0700 shift and have heard talk of it being licensed to Ohio State Police. I am in Allegheny county, known for governmental inefficiency...won't slam them further...

Anyway, if one of you geniuses would dig into this I would appreciate it. The FCC codes and their database mystifies me....am very busy with the bad guys and such.

Help me out and I won't cite you for speeding......

Getting tired here, long night and court this morning.

73's,

Ed

According to the RRDB OSH doesn't utilize this freq, as they are on this trunked system:

There are quite a few licenses in PA on the same freq:

I checked all the licensed users in WV too, as well as Ohio, and using the RR database could not located a specific user with 154.86 131.8. There were numerous users that had a blank tone with the 154.86 channel.

The 154.860 Freq in Allegheny County is actually using a PL of 162.2. I'm not sure if this matters. If you are hearing the other station while your mic is in the holder of the car or on portables then the other station is using the same PL. If you only hear the other station when your mic is not in the holder and never on portables then they are using a different PL. Knowing the PL they are or are not using may help track it down. I'll listen where I am and see what I hear.
