• 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:

Just recently I have been receiving transmissions from Washington County Sheriff's Dispatch frequency 155.745 PL 110.9 on 155.595 PL 110.9! I live in Essex County and don't normally listen to Washington County, but the output is so strong that it is comming through on 155.595 PL 110.9 (NYSP Troop B Car to Station).

Has Washington County changed their radio system around and added new transmission sites? Possibly on Mt. Defiance in Ticonderoga?

Yes, the new Law Enforcement Dispatch Frequency for Washington County is 155.895 DPL 155. The "old" repeater on 155.745 TPL 110.9 is still active until all units are programmed. The new system is a voted system with towers on Burch Hill (Hartford/Hebron town line), Willard Mtn. (Easton), Ft Edward (Municipal Center) and Mt. Defiance. Mt. Defiance is not active yet, but all antennas will be directed to the south to serve Putnam, Dresden and Huletts, and not bother Tico and Essex County.

Thanks for the info 58006!

If the Mt. Defiance site is not active, I wonder why I am picking them up on 155.595 PL 110.9?

I wonder if the Defiance site is active but they are still using 155.745 PL 110.9?
