• 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 in Veazie, and I can't hear anything on the Dexter/Newport police frequency at 156.21, but I can hear both sides of the conversation on 154.845, listed here as the input frequency. I also pick up a tone of 146.2 on that frequency, not the 123.0 listed here. Anyone who can confirm what I get? Anyone closer to Dexter who can confirm that the database is correct? Just curious.

P.S. I'm also occasionally getting a Dexter PD input on 158.7600, which, according to the database here, is also the frequency for an encrypted UMO channel. Anyone know anything about that one?

Thanks for confirming that. Anyone else have any knowledge of frequencies in the area?

I'm trying to figure out the whole scheme, and I'm a newbie at this, so..... I've been looking at the FCC database and am having a hard time figuring it all out. I plugged 154.845 into the FCC database and got myself a little less confused, but not much. Anyone who's good at reading those things and figuring it all out want to give me a quick tutorial? I'd be very appreciative.
