since frequencies vary by FO [Field Office] and then by RA [Resident Agent] Offices your best bet is to spend sometime searching 162-174 Mhz. Look for 167.9 Hz tones or $167 NACs for P25

Don't expect activity 24/7 as they do not operate like a typical Police/Sheriff's Disp

Typically, you will only hear long conversations or exchanges during surveillance. On top of that, a lot of the surveillance is encrypted. During operations, they will usually make sure they are all encrypted.

Occasionally, an agent will forget to flip the switch or not have the key in their radio, so all will be in the clear. This is rare.

Expect to hear short blips of encrypted traffic. Also, most surveillance is done simplex. So, if you're not close enough, the scanner won't pick it up. I would say, within a mile radius, give or take a bit, should be close enough. There is no need to repeat surveillance traffic, usually.

There probably are some DEA, FBI, ATF etc conversations in Ohio that are not encrypted, but it is hard to find them. If you could leave one scanner searching between 162 Mhz and 174 Mhz, you might find some. Might take a year or two though. Maybe not - I dont think there is too much hard info on the subject. This is probably your best place on the Internet to ask. Maybe someone will give you some help directly. Maybe they already have. Peter Sz
