• 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 am probably going to start near long beach and head north. As far as how far depends on my mood. I thought maybe they all worked on a small set of frequencies. Are they fun to monitor? Thanks, Bill

Baywatch Freqs according to FreqOfNature.com:

Los Angeles County Fire Department Baywatch boats are are dispatched on their 37 MHz frequencies and sometimes on VHF Marine Channel 16 (156.8000) by the US Coast Guard. If the original call comes in to LA County Fire dispatch then the dispatch also goes out on the LA County Fire BLUE 8 dispatch frequency.

Generally the Lifeguard beach units or operations headquarters call the boat directly on the lifeguard frequency to assist with an ongoing incident.

Channel Description Frequency Tone
Baywatch 1 Santa Monica 37.2000
Baywatch 2 Hermosa Beach 37.0600 88.5
Baywatch 3 Rescue Boats 37.3600
Baywatch 4 Point Dume 37.0800
Baywatch Southern 159.6250 103.5
Baywatch Central 159.5250
Baywatch Northern 161.3750

Marine Ch 16 US Coast Guard Calling 156.8000

I would most likely be monitoring them with my eyes in addition to my scanner. Babe Watch! (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
