• 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:

My radios have 3 of those programmed.

SPLX 4 866.9625
SPLX 5 867.2250
ALL LG 867.2750

There is another channel,
SMA 10
which gives a closecall hit on 822.7875 CTCSS 156.7 (at least I'm PRETTY sure that's the input, not an output...don't know for sure that it's not repeated)

Dunno what the use of the last one is. To my knowledge, none of my guys (for any legitimate purpose at least) have used the simplex freqs. They talk about the good-ole days with simplexes, but I don't think they know they have any, what to use them for, or how to access them on their radios. To be honest, I can't think of a whole lot of uses for them either, with how many talkgroups exist on the system...barring some major emergency or unforseen disaster.

I'm not sure who this is licensed to (The state probably) but I have this listed as a Federal-Local Coordination channel. 156.7 is a standard PL for that freq.
