South Mississippi Frequencies...

    If you happen to pass through southern Mississippi, and you're into scanning, try these frequencies: They should be accurate as of 2 Feb.  Also, if you're interested in other agencies within the state, these frequencies will assist you (however, there are on the lite side).  There are also frequencies for neighboring states.


 Jackson County

    I am still in the process of working these frequencies, so please bear with me.  At this time, however, the TrunkTracker ID for Jackson County SO Dispatch is 1072.  As with most of these systems, it shares its resources with several other agencies.  If you wish to divulge additional information, please e-mail me.


Jones County, Laurel, Ellisville, SoSo, Sandersville

    Arrived late June/early July 1994.  Plans call for an expansion system for the southern portion of the county soon.

    TrunkTracker info:


Hattiesburg - Trunked

    Hattiesburg features one of the first trunked system in the state.


Jackson

    Largest and busiest in the state, this system also features the ever-popular "anti-scanner" tone.  Make sure you possess a fast scanner!


Madison

    Haven't had the time really to verify the actual trunked system, however, after monitoring the data channel I'm pretty sure that it's a Motorola system.  If you have any additional information please e-mail me.


Bassfield

    Most of the small towns in this state (and around the country) use a single-frequency (simplex) system.  However, the Town Council of Bassfield (pop >850) decided (forced?) to utilize a repeater.  Guess those tax dollars really are being used correctly.


Beaumont


Brookhaven


Columbia

    This agency has been known to utilize simple voice-inversion scrambling on certain transmissions.


Lucedale


Magee


McComb

    One of the very few agencies in the sate that utilize the UHF band.


Mendenhall


Monticello


Biloxi

    This agency, as well as Gulfport and Harrison County, are contemplating a revised communications system based possibly on APCO-25 standards.


Natchez

    A difficult agency to locate initially, due to the fact that it's not listed in Police Call or any other publication that I know of.  Quite possibly operating without a license from the FCC.
