• 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:

Go to www.carmachicago.com and download the various Profiles, including the State Radio, District 15 and the local county docs. You will travel thru JoDaviess, Stephenson, Winnebago, Boone, McHenry, Kane, DuPage and Cook Counties.

Enjoy the trip!

For lake county on CarmaChicago, many of the PL tones are incorrect as are frequencies for some agencies.

If you have a few minutes to note the errors please do so and let me know, then I can correct and update the Profile. You can use the email address included on the Profile.

Thanks!

I have found the Lake Country profile to be very accurate and useful.

The LC Races needs a minor update: Quad 1 is now 146.565 and the UHF repeater's tone is 114.8. (From their web-site).
