• 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:

Noticed the state has a blanket type of license for 4.9GHz now.
Callsign is WQFH558, and it covers 4940.000 to 4990.000.

That sounds like it's a data link for the 800 system. I read somewhere that the LATIE system is going to have 4.9 Ghz on their
system also. The LATIE system is going to be on 700 Mhz.

The 4.9 GHz public safety band is mainly used by wideband 802.* type stuff including MDTs.
Licenses are for the entire band in a geographical area instead of the familiar site based discrete frequency VHF/UHF licenses .
