• 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.

    FKU CALFIRE tone out codes?

    Does anyone have,or know where to find the tone out codes for Fresno/Kings CALFIRE . Trying to "catch" them using the 15X or BCD996XT would take weeks and you might still miss the ones you wanted. Trying to get Company 74,75,76 out of BLASINGAME or the Tollhouse volunteers.
