• 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 have attached my USAD 396t file. Not totally accurate, unable to hear the County all the time, but should be a good start. And I added MetroSafe, but I have not had time to label it.

As listed in NewsAlan's USD files - for EMS: Channels 9(Urban) & 10 (Suburban) are the active dispatch channels. Channel 6(suburban) and 5(urban) are the service or BS channels. Channel 8 (and possibly 7) is med unit to hospital call-ins, (mostly). All his frequencies and pl tones are accurate, as are NOFDExplorer's (though he's missing a pl tone or two).

Med channels 1,2,3, are rarely, if ever used. 4 is a back-up service channel.

On fire, channels 1-4 (Urban) are used. 4 is dispatch. 1 is most operations, 2 is for used on big fires. 3 are investigators and inspectors. Channels 1-3 (Suburban), mutual aid and dispatch are in heavy use. Channel 4 is an overflow channel.

On suburban police, channels 1 and 2 are dispatch channels. 3 is for warrants and other mundance stuff. 4 is a simplex BS channel. Command is a patch to urban channels.

I don't listen much to urban police, so I don't know much about them.

Urban is within the old city limits. Suburban is outside that (general outside of the watterson expressway).
