• 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:

I'm nailing down the Hamtramck frequencies and wonder if I can get some help extrapilating the unknown frequencies as they're unpublished.

What I've got:

423.750 - Dispatch
423.850 - Reserves
425.750 - Spec. Events

1) What are the other frequencies based on what you know about how they're assigned? Where should I start looking?

2) Where do I look them up on the FCC site?

Thanks fellas.

I doubt that you will get much help in a public forum when you are looking for unpublished frequencies. Your best bet would be to PM a few people that you know live in the area and see if they have anything.

Hamtramck Fire Dept is/was on 153.890. I don't know if they still operate on that freq as I have not turned on a vhf scanner in awhile.

I have heard that Hamtramck wants to move over to the MPSCS, since Detroit is on that system. However, the big stumbling block is finding the money to buy the new radios, but they have applied for federal grant funding to help offset the costs. Hopefully, they will get approved and can buy some new radios very soon. This way they can communicate directly with all of the neighboring agencies for mutual aid purposes.

Agreed. Since Detroit upgraded it sure would make it easier to communicate with DPD. We're always chasing people into Detroit. That and I could justify the purchase of a shiny new scanner.

Thank you sir, I've got the suggestions programmed and will verify em.

Also, thanks everybody with the suggestions. I'll update the database when I get this sorted out.

As broke as that city is i wonder if they have the cash to go with MPSCS ? Hell the FD/EMS calls back to Dispatch and dispatch calls the hospital with patient's vital's from what I hear on the Scanner when the FD goes on runs

If Highland Park can get MSPCS radios I think Hamsadwich should be able to find a way.

As for the FD they can call the hospitals on the HEAR system but the DMECA hospitals don't monitor them like they should and HEMS can not always catch them calling.

Hamtramck police and fire are indeed in the process of moving to the MPSCS, the goal is to have it completed by the end of the year.

I got a hunch ...

I guess they've decided to run everything encrypted. Game over.
So where did you get this info.
I got a hunch this isn't true. I'm sure the spirit of the grant they are getting from the county is for interoperatibilty. Being encrypted kinda defeats the purpose.

From members of the PD and the FD. Even dispatch is encrypted. I wish I was wrong. Maybe someone with a compatible scanner can confirm for me, I've got the talkgroup ids.
