    I have Pierce, Tacoma and WSP freq's on my scanner. I'm getting nothing right now. Is it silent for everyone else, or are they on a non published frequency?

    867.9625 has beeper on and some sort of traffic referencing Lakewood

    867.475 has beeper on and also some sort of traffic...

    I don't know what these freqs are and they are not programmed into my scanner...

    866.85 has traffic

    None of these are published on RadioReference.com

    The first and third are licensed to SERS, the Snohomish County system. They might have been re-used by Pierce or King Counties under an MOU, a lot of that sharinggoes on, though largely for simplex stuff.

    My scanner has been going almost non-stop since this morning. I'm hearing traffic on Tacoma South and LERN as well as Lakewood.

    That beeper is the emergency traffic beeper, and they would be on a tac channel that all of the agencies have so they can all talk to one another... They also maybe using an encrypted channel for their main operations to keep it out of scanner land, and side channels for less important traffic. I listened to most of it on the radio that morning right after it went down, was pretty eerie... But I also work in a place where we have the capability to listen to most of the agencies in the area...
