• 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:

Last two nights have been monitoring much traffic, drugs and hookers, on Street Response
9- 868.625Mhz APCO 25 here in Travis County Austin Tx. (SR-9 is ID 00985 in the Frank,
South East, sector.)

Good listening if you're in the area. They keep going down but they keep coming! Just amazing! Smart peole aren't commiting these crimes that's for sure...

Heard APD loose "1 large" last night. Believe this to be $100 as APD is buying and selling out there. (Well perhaps some are smarter than the average bear.)
Keep hearing referance to "trojan". From context I suspect this is an officer buying drugs to make a bust. Any confirmation?

It's a real circus for sure...

Hi Jon, I love listening to Street Response talkgroups...
I love it when APD does undercover drug or prostitution stings!!!
I get fed up when I listen to the CIB talkgroups, sometimes one side of the conversation is encrypted...I have a dedicated bank for the SR units..Do you?? I listen to all of the under cover talkgroups, APD Adam and So Adam..Leave scanner on 24/7..By the way I love it when it's around 5 or 6 am on a weekday and there is a house raid on CRIT 1 !!!! Cheers!!

Mike- yeah it's good stuff.

Interesting notion on putting SR and Crit in a bank. I think I have them in two banks with
APD,EMS,FD and DPS. Thanks!

Cheers,
Jon

868.625 is only 1 of 22 frequencies that make up the Simulcast 1 site of the Austin Travis County Trunked system. If that is was the only frequency you were locked on, then you are missing a whole lot. The best deal is to lock on the "talkgroup" you want to hear and you will continute to hear them on that talkgroup no matter which of the 22 frequencies they come up on. There is also a pretty good discussion group on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CenTexComm/

rbaker, I thought I'd posted a reply but I don't see it... (wrong click no doubt.)

Actually I was locked on the SR-9 talk group. Freq info was completely usless, as you correctly pointed out.
