Hi all,

Sounded like some detectives using VLAW 31. First time I have heard anything on it. They were def speaking about one certain vehicle 3 or 4 individual voices...no numbers, plain talk (no radio call signs heard) Hope they got the bad guys.

Best Regards

Mark

It’s the common VSP car-to-car and informal simplex channel since the federal interops became frowned upon for such chatter. At least four years now.

CSQ in all VSP radios as far as I know; if you’re hearing it with 156.7 it would be most likely coming from New Hampshire where that’s also a popular frequency/tone.

A few years ago I came upon CB style conversations in southern vermont on 475. Piecing it together and the word "barracks" I figured it was VSP but their database listing was fed interops. But that freq lit up often especially on nights with less than professional chatter.
Saw a facebook photo VSP car and interesting they had their usual UHF radio plus a VHF radio. Seeing all of VSP on UHF and many counties are UHF. With listings in the database on VHF VSP car to car. That's an interesting setup to have a separate car to car radio and on another band. And those being federal interop, whats the story behind that? Working close to federal agencies near the border?

The Rutland and Shaftsbury VSP cars had the dual band radios so they could also communicate with the law enforcement agencies in Washington and Rensselaer Counties in New York State.

I sometimes see the VSP Berlin barracks using tone 156.7 on V-Law32 I keep it punched in my scanners as SEARCH though.

Theres a youtube video out there somewhere of a VTSP car tour where they mention UHF radios for dispatch and VHF for car to car chat.
The channels are labeled VLAW, so they should be transmitting a 156.7PL by all common programming practices
