• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Wood County Fire forced off VHF to MARCS?

    Hi, based upon an article in the BG Sentinel-Tribune on June 14th, the North Baltimore EMS will be "forced" to buy MARCS radios? Why? Why can't they stay on VHF, like most of Wood County has for fire- everybody has access to 153.890 county-wide. BG City PD and Fire have DMR, but also have an...

    EMS communication changes

    This info from the Governor's office makes me think that perhaps in-the-clear EMS communications are going the way of the dinosaur, and comms will soon take place on souped-up cell phones. Thoughts? Gov. Reynolds, Lt. Gov. Gregg announce participation in new nationwide first responder network...

    UV-82HP Fire Tones/Paging

    I recently got a Baofeng UV-82HP radio. I'm new to this whole programming thing to be honest. I volunteer with my local fire dept and work for an EMS agency. I purchased the radio to one radio that would work with both as each agency doesn't program the other in the radios. The main problem I...
