• 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:

I noticed that Somerset FD is showing a couple of newer VHF narrow band channels. They use to be on low band (46.18 as I remember). My real question is - are they on the EDACS system, or are they on the VHF high band frequency? I drove through Somerset yesterday and the system audio sounded like patched audio. I also noticed FD traffic on various
02-*** AFS groups, not the 15-*** listed in the RR database.

Might anyone have any updated information on this system? I drive 13 & 50 frequently while visiting my son at college, and am curious about the system. Thanks much!

Somerset County operates on the 800MHz EDACS System. They also Multicast on VHF for Fire Calls like many others so the VHF Fire Pagers can be issued and used by responders. They also have a few full time fixed talk groups with Worcester County that are networked via "MESIN" for interoperability.

When you see the 20XX tg, that is typically a SAID (Site Assigned ID) which the system assigns for soft patches.
