• 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:

Speaking of RR Admin..
Will somebody tell me who keeps updating Milwaukee Co database with old VHF Police & Fire info.
All suburban police are on 800 now,and some of those freqs no longer belong to them or are no longer in any VHF radio they might have laying around.
Also most suburban Fire departments are on 800,sure they have VHF around for mutual aid or back up,but some no longer have their VHF fireground freqs in the radios.
I know for a fact Franklin took 154.325 out to make room for MABAS & WI mutual aid freqs

When you are looking at the at the Milwaukee County Wisconsin page if you look in the top right side you will see county last updated click on that and it will tell you who last updated the page. here is the link to it, look and see who made the changes and ask them to fix it. you can also submit info and a data Admin will look it over and make changes.

I just wondered because a lot of people think the data base is the most accurate info around,and for some reason I get a lot of emails from first time scanner users asking why they don't hear anything on the VHF freqs,then I have to try and explain what trunked radio is to them.
