• 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:

This list was originally posted on the CARMAChicago Yahoo!Group last year, but I made a few slight changes. Included are the known frequencies from the 2005 season (if I find anything has changed for 2006 I'll post a reply).

.::University of Illinois Memorial Stadium - Champaign, IL::.

FREQ-PL/DPL-USAGE
453.250 118.8 METCAD Ch 5 PD Events Detail
453.600 85.4 Football game parking
464.650 DCS047/CSQ Memorial Stadium Fireworks [A FEW RADIOS TRANSMIT CSQ, MONITOR IN 'PL SEARCH' MODE]
464.600 DCS532 Memorial Stadium Audio Techs
464.625 DCS031 Memorial Stadium press-box to band leader (ch6)
155.460 CSQ ISP HF4 (detailed units)
451.350 DCS071 Memorial Stadium Maintenance (ch1)
451.450 DCS131 Illini Emergency Medical Services
452.225 DCS115 Memorial Stadium Concessions (ch3)
452.625 DCS043 Athletics Dept Tickets/Guest Services/Golf Cart Escorts/Ushers (ch2)
158.865 CSQ Illini Emergency Medical Service "talkabout" (Illini EMS carries both VHF and UHF radios)
462.975 179.9 Arrow Ambulance Dispatch (ambulance stages at the stadium)

I've attached an Excel file with these frequencies so that you can paste them into your scanner software.

If you find other frequencies or talkgroups on any of the local trunked systems that should be added to this list, please post them.

Looking ahead to the Illini basketball season...

Assembly Hall Events
464.525 (100.0) Main Assembly Hall Operations (mentioned "go to ch 1", so this repeater is not ch1, Possibly ch1 is 463.350?)
453.250 (118.8) U of I PD at the Assembly Hall
463.350 (DCS506) Assembly Hall Security

Thanks for the list. The way things are looking, listening to the scanner may be more enjoyable than the game.

Thank goodness for tailgates.

-Arrow Ambulance 462.975 (179.9) didn't have any activity related to this weekends game that I heard
-I didn't note any CSQ on 464.650 'Fireworks' - everything was DCS047
-Peoria Charter Coach 464.075 DCS654 may have had some activity related to the game
-heard 464.500 (141.3) [unknown who this was, possibly Syracuse?]

Nothing related to the game heard on any of the following TRS's:

Updates from the Ohio State game 10/4/06:

*Arrow Ambulance provided EMS coverage for this game, not PRO Ambulance.
*Fire personnel at the game use MABAS 154.265 [NOT IN THE ATTACHED SPREADSHEET]. They also monitor for dispatches on 154.070 (131.8).

Also, scan through the itinerant frequencies. Various ones will pop up and be active just for one game. These must be used by visiting teams or media.

The 2007 season should be interesting as METCAD and IL State Police are both expected to be using Motorola ASTRO trunked systems by then.
