• 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 will be visiting the area soon. The RR data base has a note that FDs will soon be moving to the EDACS ProVoice system, but the note is undated....

So what's the story, what's the best frequency(ies) or system to program into my 396T to listen to fire comms in the area.

TIA,

As far as I could tell from monitoring El Paso from Las Cruces (~60 miles or so as a crow flies over the Franklin Mountain, El Paso (includes the FD) is still using Motorola trunking system. Program your 396 with the information from the RR Database:

So far El Paso FD is on a Motorola trunked system with NO plans to go EDACS. It is going digital but it will be with Motorola. New radios are in the process of getting issued slowly and once all radios are replaced the switch will be made. For now the RR database freqs will work. HTH.
