    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.

Has anyone ever heard traffic on the Valley Hospital fireground frequency?

Some report it to be 155.385 PL 192.8, other reports indicate a UHF repeater was installed at Valley and operats on 470.650 PL unknown.

Any confirmed reports would be appreciated. Thanks.

155.3850 192.8 was Valley Security (may still be???) When I was an EMT we had it in our rig as Valley Security with that PL. 470.6500 is used in Simplex with 136.5 PL, heard activity on it during the Ridgewood July 4th Fireworks.

Confirmed; Ridgewood F.D. now using a repeater on 470.650, CTCSS 136.5 MHz located on the roof of Valley Hospital for all Valley Hospital related fire ground traffic. Activity monitored on this frequency 9/15/06 during an F.D. response to a malfunctioning alarm.

It's your website; label it whatever you want to.

The repeater is on the roof of Valley Hospital and I believe that's all it's used for; fireground communications at Valley.

470.650, CTCSS 136.5
