• 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:

Please forgive me if this has been asked and answered. Does anyone have any word on when the rebanding will start taking place for Ohio? I know I've seen a map and chart but for the life of me I cannot remember where the heck it is. Thanks for any replies.

Probably not until mid-2007, if then. The voluntary negotiation period for current licensees of the 851-854 band was pushed back to July 3 of this year, and lasts 90 days. Then comes the mandatory negotiation period for those licensees; another 90 days. Then the current public safety band....

Here is the schedule as it currently stands:

July 3-October 2, 2006 - Voluntary negotiation period for 851-854 MHz licensees
October 3-January 2 2007 - Mandatory negotiation period for 851-854 MHz licensees
Febrary 1-April 30, 2007 - Voluntary negotiation period for 866-869 MHz licensees
May 1-July 31, 2007 - Mandatory negotiation period for 866-869 MHz licensees

Then they start changing frequencies; a few licensees *might* get changed a bit early, but realistically I wouldn't look for that to happenn......

And it's possible that the negotiation period for 866-869 MHz licensees will get pushed back.

In other words, your current scanners are still good for at least another 12-18 months.

The 96 is the only one I use for 800, so I'm glad I got it. Maybe a second for father's day??
