• 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:

Looking for Somerville Fire... Metrofire shows 483.3875 (131.8) as channel 1. 483.2625 (131.8) as channel 2. Which is the same as Metrofire Blue. Also found 483.4125 (131.8) as channel 3. Any info would be helpful. THANKS to all!

As state channel 1 is dispatch, channel two is sommerville fireground, it is repeated, whereas blue is simplex only. Channel 3 is Medford FD

Stdgeman - what do you mean by "Channel 3 is Medford FD"?

I listen to Medford FD on 153.89R.

483.4125 is Reading FD & Wayland FD. Somerville FD might use it very infrequently as a spare channel.

153.89 is a "statewide fireground" its actually used by a whole host of agenices, Medford included. You will find it is used by Revere, Everett, and Chelsea also. I also believe most of the Belmont Control agenices have it also. Its a good frequency to have programmed.

153.89

153.89 used to be Boston Ch. 2 fireground, way back. Ther frequency 153.83 is the national low power fireground for vhf. Medford applied for the frequency when Boston went uhf. Boston uses the 153.89 in the MBTA underground only. It is piggybacked on the T system. Supposedly to change when T goes 800.
