    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.

I just heard that Skiatook Police will be getting a repeater setup soon for the mobile units...

right now both the FD and PD are transmitted from /\/\ MTR-2000s; Total Radio is supposed to be coming out soon and getting the PD reapeater setup.

Next to a scanner...
Y'all going P25 compatible? Get a Quantar or better yet, a Quantro!!!

Get those, then it's only the mobiles/HTs you have to upgrade to P25.

I thought digicom out of bartlesville did FD & PD radio's for skiatook . I know they do OCSO and WCSO but Some times they do but there is another small dealer up in bartlesville that does WCSO . I wouldn't put it past the city to switch to 800 trunked since that town is growing so fast . I thought the state set aside 155.250 for the game dept

I figured something out today... opinions please

Today at work there was a Oklahoma Highway Patrol unit west of town trying to talk (simplex) to a Skiatook PD unit on 155.250 and niether one could hear each other very well, so I patched 250 on the "Police Dept" channel to the "Public Works" channel on the Centracom, but reassigned the PW channel freq from 155.715 to 155.250. So... the console was retransmitting (repeating) mobile traffic it heard on 250 at the repeater/transmittter site at however many watts dispatch is heard and the two mobile over 25+ miles apart could hear each other crystal clear.

Right now, only the dispatch console can be heard on the repeater (it's linked by land-line), but we are in the process of setting up an input frequency for the mobiles to use it as well. Is what I did an acceptable "temporary fix" untill the true repeater is up and running?
