    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 heard the Crittenden Co. Search & Rescue call for a radio check on their "new 800 band" radios.....I didn't see what frequency they were on, I was across the room and couldn't make it to the scanner in time....altho I'm pretty sure it was 856.6625 - which is what Marion PD operates on.

I also have heard Marion PD asking for radio checks, and some units were having difficulty transmitting.

I hear ASP on 153.5300 quite a bit when they assist the Crittenden County SO......

I reckon my question is......Is Marion PD and/or Crittenden Co. SO getting new radios to be able to utilize the new AWIN system?

Yes, they have AWIN radios. At least Crittenden Co. does. I have heard them calling ADEM (Arkansas Dept. of Emergency Mgmt.) doing radio checks. They use the same frequencies as the troop they are in.

Not sure about Marion PD, but I am sure they have the capability as well.

Marion Channel??

I heard two Marion units talking on 856.6625, and one said to go to the "Marion City Channel".....anyone know what that may be?

I have heard that reference for the last few days and I can not seem to find it.

As for the AWIN stuff.....I GOTTA get me a 996!!!!!

I think 852.0125 is dead

Marion has had 800 capabilities for sometime. Marion City Channel is 852.01250 .
Crittenden County also has this capability.

I havent heard any traffic on that frequency in a long time.....I still have it programmed in my scanner. I found the 856.6625 frequency when I stopped hearing traffic on the other.

I also updated the RR database with the current freq. 852 is not even in the FCC database for Marion / Crittenden Co.
