• 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:

Ok, perhaps I'm just crazy... but I bought an MTS 2000 off of ebay awhile back, and one of the frequencies preprogrammed in it says "Fed Channel". I have been getting traffic locally here in Columbus on it, but since I don't have the software for the radio yet, I have no idea what the frequency is. I know its not DCFS, or Rickenbacker. It sounds kind of digital, has a bit of a worrble to it. They seem to check in on the hour, with unit numbers like G501C. They also refer to dispatch as the "Mega Center" . Anybody have a clue as to what this may be.

The Department of Homeland Security "Federal Protective Service" repeater on 415.2000 MHz (PL 103.5). FPS is basically security services for federal buildings and "Mega Center" is their consolidated dispatch facility.

Mega Center

Here in the Cleveland area they also do hourly roll calls to "Mega Center" which also sometimes goes by "Battlecreek". I often see the GSA cars on I-90 coming and going from Cleveland.

They had a stove fire in some Fed instalation last week, it was sort of funny to listen to them scramble around.
