• 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:

The best source for Uniden Fire Tone-outs for Illinois (especially the Chicagoland area) is the database section of the CarmaChicago Yahoo!Group.

Unfortunately, there are no tone-outs in the CARMA database for Peoria County.

If you want them bad enough just record them on your PC and use something like CoolEdit or SpectrumLab to get the tone freq.

I looked in camrachicago and didn't see Peoria FTO I did a seacrh in the box there. I had to do that for Franklin Park to get FTO. I use 3 different programs to get tones. I also have a nother program that does tones from qc1-custom. if you can record them to computer and semd a file and I can see if I can get some numbers for you please also have the audio when they dispatch so I know what station they are also.

Fire Tone-out

Hello everyone I have decoded the alert tones for C MED, They are:

Central Medical Emergency Dispatch (C MED)
155.220
321.7Hz/1153.4 C MED Alert Tones Hz 1sec/3sec QCII

You can find them and the rest of Peoria Counties tones @ http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?action=codes&code_id=2577

But now I'm try to decode TAZCOM's alert tones for AMTin Pekin. Does anyone know if they simulcast AMT'S dispatch on Pekin FD freq 154.250. I know they simulcast Pekin FD dispatch off of the EDACS system to the VHF system (Pekin FD freq 154.250)

Thanks, usaf32dpj

What is he cheapest way to decode tones? I've heard of several programs out there but what is free and works? And do I need to be able to plug my recorder into the scanner and the computer?

ComTekk 2-Tone Decoder is pretty reasonable, their are free programs out their though. I plug my scanner into my computer(you don't have too though). I think by doing this you get a better decode.

Fire Tone-out

Here's a couple of document to help all in determining the right FTO (Fire Tone-Out). You'll need to be close, but this should help you with the right tone hertz.
