• 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:

Any PL or DPL on it?
trafficdan,

It's out of my range for on-scene comms to detect a tone. I got a few chirps on the freq over the weekend.

Sorry,

Andy

At a whopping .3 w output you'll have to be REALLY close.
What radio lets you set it to .3w anyway?

This may have nothing to do with it but....
Over the years the police (basically) took over what used to be the FD TAC repeater on 502.1375 for their chit-chat channel. It has better coverage than the PD dispatch freq on 508.6375. FD used to use it in non-rptr mode on scene,

Just some FYI based on monitoring (and living in Media for 5yrs).

Dave!

I recall you told me about the "fox" frequency ages ago over on SS before you left Media. I call it the "comedy" channel.

Many thanks again.

You should see State St. now! They did a sidewalk project and in the process cut down ALL the trees. The shade is gone. That and it's more or less become Restaurant Row, with come and go endeavors every 6 months or so. :(

All the best,

Andy
