• 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:

They use the normal frequencies for the Angeles which is 172.375 for Forest Net, used by fire and law enforcement units. The Forest's admin net is on 164.9375 and is used by everyone else. During multiple fires the admin net is sometimes used as a second command frequency for fires. They have the normal NIFC tactical and command net frequencies programmed into their radios. Take a look in the Wike portion of this website under "National Incident Radio Support Cache" if you don't know those frequencies. Also used and heard is the R5 Project net on 164.150 as a day to day activity simplex frequency for all functions (fire, LE, recreation, resources, etc.).

The Angeles has 14 repeaters and a handful of microwave linked remote bases. When the latter is used you can't hear the mobile end unless you are fairly close by or the unit is at a high elevation and not down in a canyon. Listen for the morning fire resource lineup on 172.375 about 0930-1000 and you will hear every station being queried for the days staffing. This is a good time to figure out what you can and cannot hear from your location.
