• 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 so we know the car Vehicular Repeater frequencies what freq does the portables work off of any ideas? BTW i have found the Vehicular Repeater works very well in letting me know when they are around or close to me... :)

They operate off the VR frequencies. VR1, 2, and 3 unless on another specified channel. That's what the portables are for, so they can communicate back to the vehicle repeater.

Last time I checked, they are 5 Mhz above the repeater eg. if the VR is 410.8625 then the portable would transmit 415.8625.

They are not 5Mhz above the output frequencies and they never have been.

I believe the outputs and their corresponding inputs are listed in the database.

Sorry about that. I stand corrected. Actually the portables were 5 MHz higher on the old NOR system.... I remember this when I used to live in London just down the road from the London detachment.

The reason there isn't the regular 5MHz split is because it would be MUCH too easy for someone with too much time on their hands (ie, someone with a ham rig) to have some "fun". It's not a perfectt solution, but it's a heck of a lot better than what they used with the old Mitrek repeaters. The new Futurecoms use a non standard split, and a different TX and RX PL tone (with the exception of the legacy VRS/Portable channels). "Someone" posted an .XLS spreadsheet awhile back that had all the input/output frequencies and PL tones, but that was taken down pretty quick. However, evereything posted on RadioReference is 100% correct.
