• 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:

F-12/13 is "Fire PAC" activate and non-activate, respectively. What, exactly, is "PAC?" Also, a prior CHM edition suggests a tone code of 152 for F-12....but our database shows CSQ for BOTH 12 & 13. Anyone know for certain?

PAC/RT= mobile extender. Kent County used them more when they had lowband radios exclusively. Now very few units have the repeater since the switch to highband.

OK...thank you. That fills in the gap....from what I've gathered, it looks like that freq operates in CSQ only (as far as monitoring is concerned). Units have/had the option of selecting or de-selecting a transmit tone (presumably for keying or not keying the repeater)...hence the same freq for F12 & 13.
