A friend of mine is just getting into scanning using a PRO97 in the area near Williams. He has a trailer off the old route 66. He isn't pickie about what he listens to and I really can't find anything for him to listen to as I don't know the area at all. He comes from Vegas so he also needs help with agenies in Yavapai County in route to his trailer. Any help with frequencies of any kind greatly appreciated.

Flagstaff PD is on a type II trunking system if you have a type II scanner and a good outside antenna it is receivable in Williams, Some of the CC's and Vc's are 857.9875, 859.4375, 858.9875, 860.4375, 855.2125, 856.2125, 857.2125, 854.9625, 856.7375 857.7375.

NOAA weather 162.4 Flag, 162.525 Mingus mtn. near Prescott.

All of the above are analog FM

Below are some active conventional, non trunked, P25 digital frequencies:

ICE, (Immigration and Customs Enforcement): a mix of Digital P25 clear and P25 AES256 encrypted: 171.1875MHz

Another ICE channel: 171.325 about 100% encrypted.

ICE OTAR channel, not much voice traffic, mainly OTAR data but you never know what you'll hear. 169.1625Mhz

ATF P25 digital 167.125MHz. Some mix of clear P25 and P25 AES256 encrypted.

FBI P25 clear most times but some times encrypted AES256. 163.8875MHz sometimes carries traffic from Phoenix also.

Lets see ?

I probably left something out but this should get you started.

Yep you are on the right track, some people from the other club called the PUSD and said that they didn't have insurance and that it was a liability to let them have the hamfest.

What makes me mad is that they weren't interfering with anything that the other club was doing but still the DINGUS MTN. babies had to have their way.

This is the reason why I don't belong to any clubs anymore.

You know me I don't keep up on the radio politics around here, like you I'm to busy with work etc., but from what I was told it was someone who has the last letters of BOB in his call who screwed it up, makes me sick to even have an 8 call.

I told the club pres that he should still hold it somewhere else instead of giving in to a bunch of @##%^&*(, I mentioned not to roll over and once you give in they will always take advantage of you in the future.

I'm listening on .42 tonite, we can chat over there if your on later.
