    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.

Hey I was wondering what kind of radio is most commonly used by OHP for lowband in their units? Motorola, GE/Macom, Icom, Kenwood....etc.

We have 60's era GE's in most of ours here in Troop H.
I have a friend that retired from DPS Communication hre in Tulsa in 1996 that started way out there in Clinton at the age of 18. When I told them that the troopers out there are using the same radios as they were when he was in diapers, he couldn't belive it!

Oh, good! Troop H will still be able to communicate if an electro-magnetic pulse wipes out all the sollid state equipment!

Don't tell me H troop is using GE Mastr-pros with 7984 tube finals in them. Wow someone pass the hat I'd thought they'd at least have GE Mastr II's.

Yea, I think that's the model. Here's a photo of one that's very similar: They also use Mastr II's and Motorola's. No troopers have ht's. unless they purchased them for their own use. Mostly hi band stuff with the local so's.
