    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.

Hi...

Was up in Ranson and Charlestown last weekend and noticed that each town has their own PD. Can't find any licenses for them in the FCC database or anything on the site here. Was wondering if they operate off the Jefferson County PD repeater or do they have their own frequencies?

Thanks in advance,

Andy

someone that monitor's that more then I do can correct me if I am wrong. I think they may use Jefferson County Sheriff's Dept. the WV State PD use the local freqs as well in some locations.

As far as I know, most police transmisions (all departments) are on 154.875, which is repeated. They also use 153.815 for secondary radio traffic, or for when Ch 1 is held for priority traffic. I sometimes can hear the dispatcher on ch. 4, but not the mobiles, from my location (25 miles away).

But when I was looking frequencies to program last fall, I only used what was Jefferson's main page, and not the FCC data.

Of course, the departments may each get thier own TG's once the Jefferson switches to the TRS down the road.
