• 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 located only 2 frequencies for Jims & I seldom hear much on them. Anyone have any additional info? Are they using a trunking system or maybe on nextel?

Can't answer your question as to freq, howevr I underestand that they are now the full time hook for LPD. They used to rotate every day, but now using Jim's all the time.

Yes, I have noticed that LPD uses them a lot.

I was always hearing LPD say get me a hook then disp: Jims is in route. I was hoping to get them into my communication loop so that I could hear them paging the driver ;)

I actually have heard quite a bit on 461.9500 today, but was never able to follow Officer-to-DISP-to-Jims-to-Driver, so they must be using something else as well. retro is most likely correct.
