    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:

Hello!

Does anyone know any frequencies for Helicopters in the Orlando Area? Such as Local 6 Helicopters? My objective is to be able to listen to eyes in the sky for weather, traffic and police usage. Does anyone know any freqs for choppers in the ORL area that aren't outdated? I can't seem to get the freqs posted on Google and several websites to work...

I have all these frequencies programmed into my scanner, but I never receive any communications from any of these or any other chopper freqs. But I do receive comms from everything else. Is there a specific time of day these choppers are active? I know it doesn't come cheap to fly a chopper and transmit 24/7 ;)

James, I'm guessing that Chase 1 through 5 are OCSO TalkGroups? They aren't listed in the database - can you elaborate or provide a link to where you got these from? Thanks.

Chase 1 through Chase 5 are the helicopters used by Orange County, their activity would be on the regular OCSO patrol talkgroups listed in the database.

Same goes for Seminole County's Alert 1 and Alert 2 which is on SCSO patrol talkgroups, local PD patrol talkgroups, and occasionally Fire TAC talkgroups when needed.

Dont forget the Medical Choppers. Orlando Air-Care is pretty cool and you will hear them well in Central Fla. You will often hear "Scramble, Scramble Air - Care" and chopper comms back and forth with the dispatch at ORMC. Fla Hospital CareFlight 1 is also interesting.

ORMC AIR CARE....155.340 mghz
Care Flight 1..........155.400 mghz

Both use 155.220 as a secondary and can on occasion hear chit chat there as well.

Take care...

Orange County Fire also has "Firestar 1" on the orange county trunked system and they are quartered at Orlando Executive next to the OCSO Chase Copters
