• 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:

Ravenna Township FD recently got issued a new repeater frequency with FCC Callsign of WQFB804

159.4575 (output) 153.9875 (input)

Does anyone know if this is online, or, it's intended use?

Firecom (Ravenna Twp.) Recently relocated and is in the process of upgrading their capabilities through grant money. I believe that the departments that they dispatch for may begin using this and discontinue using Portage Count Fire 1 and 2. But I am not certain.

Where did Firecom move to? Last I knew, they were at Ravenna Twp FD.

Also, is this repeater online? If so, what PL/DPL tone?

They simply moved from upstairs to downstairs. I don't know anything further but I will begin to monitor these frequencies today.

Thanks. Is Aurora FD now operating a repeater on 154.295, also?
I know Kent has been operating one on 154.235 for a while, now.
