• 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:

W I-10 Radios


Effective Mid July, West Harris County EMS and West I-10 FD are
going to be dispatched by the Cypress Creek EMS Comm Center, off of
FM 1960. I have no idea what 'Comm' Channel they will be called or
so forth, but I am pretty sure that is what it is about. The
department appears to be getting ready for the switch. Since I work
at HCECC, I have heard a little about this.

West I-10 and West Harris Co. EMS are also going to UHF and getting off the County 800 system. I don’t know the freq’s yet for their UHF channels. I thought I was told July 1 but I guess that maybe has been changed.

There's an update in the works, but here goes with a quote from another scanner group:

> Comm 20 (Primary Dispatch) - 460.250
> Comm 21 (Tac Channel) - 460.200
> Comm 22 (Tac Channel) - 461.825

The place for this information is the Database, not the forums. But it has been in the database for several weeks.
