The after action report from the Ft Lauderdale airport shooting mentioned their radio system slowed dramatically about 1430 when school bus drivers turned radios on and the affiliation traffic ramped up.

Not that I have noticed, they seem to be business as usual here.

He is correct, THPD went to TAC 1 on Monday because of "scanner app" people aka Meth heads following units around on the midnight shift... Might be the last we have heard of the THPD... good sources have told me this!

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Our local SRO's have both a school connect+ radio and their usual safe-t radios to keep things separate. I know the national weather service office in North Webster has access to safe-t however I believe they only have IDHS talkgroups available and I hardly ever hear them at all, only monthly radio checks.

The traffic from this specific school corporation is stuff that should be on their own radio network. They'll tie up several talkgroups talking to bus drivers, asking so and so if he / she missed the bus, sometimes they rattle off long lists of names.. etc. It hasn't been as bad lately so maybe someone got onto them but they're still on there on a daily basis.

That's what I figured. Sadly, not a surprise.

Though I thought the last time this issue blew up, THPD was removed from the streaming feed. I guess not.
