    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.

Yes and no. Wood County EMS still uses 154.43 and Wood County volunteer fire departments still use 154.22. I believe Wood County Sheriff still uses VHF high, but Parkersburg PD and FD are either using 800 trunk or P-25 digital. Vienna VFD runs seperate VHF on 155.05. Another interesting channel to program would be 453.700. The last two times I have been near Grand Central Avenue I have picked up Harrison County Headquarters very clear. You may also be interested in Washington County, Ohio frequencies as well.

I just heard that Jefferson County will be placing a tower in service sometime prior to the end of the summer, with testing to commence shortly thereafter......

Freq requests are in....Keep watching!

Opps: I apologize guys, I thought I clicked the Interop forum.......
