• 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:

was monitoring the sheriffs dept this weekend and noticed that they were using digital on their main channel, apparently one of the cars didn't have an 800 in it for car to car and so they used thier the main channel but it was digital for car to car. just that unit. one of the units asked them why not use channel 6, and he said that six doesn't have the range cause there is no repeater, makes sense, the 800 radio has enough range for the whole county, were i guess channel 6 doesn't have more than 5 miles or so? anyhow, thought you all would like to know we do have digiatal now.

Which channel was that - 155.68500 or 155.98500?

I'm headed up that way this October to visit family, and I'll program that in. I left it out figuring they were still on the 800. BTW what's the latest about going back to VHF?

Any other interesting radio monitoring news going on?

155.685, 155.985 is just for local police and fire in the county, sometimes, used by S.o. if they clear the main channel. sounds like they are going to stay with the 800 for car to car and get the new digital radios for interop with city of grand forks, sounds like they may stay 800 too and use the new radios for special stuff, i know they added one or two new freqs to the old license. like i said they like the county wide coverage they get for car to car on the 800 vs. ch 6. plus they can be yaking away and heare the main radio.

I'm in OKC but I like trying to figure this stuff out. Since channel 6 is probably car-to-car, it's possibly a talkaround for Ch 5 dispatch. But the license also has a few other freqs on it that may be worth plugging in. KAD798 lists 155.430, 155.505, and 458.525. Also the license at http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&action=fcc&cs=KAB623 has quite a few freqs on it as well. Hope you all figure it out.

let me make this perfectly clear to

ok, one more time to make it perfectly clear to all of you, this is how grand forks county is set up right now, these are the only ones ever used. and by the way, the county doesn't dispatch. the city of grandforks dispatches for the county. lots of people don't seem to get that, cause one of the licenses is in the city of grand forks' name.

And the reason this didn't make it into the database (to avoid this discussion) is....
