• 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:

Sounds like they are doing a test of the countywide dispatch frequency, along with mutual aid 3 east. Is that out of the ordinary?

Out of the ordinary? No. However this one seemed to be on a larger scale. reminded me of when there was an earthquake a few months ago and they went through all the los angeles county fire stations asking for location and earthquake intensity.

Los Angeles County Earthquake Roll Call Recording. (start playing at around 18min)

That would be the weekly (at least I think it's still weekly) test of the LARTCS system www.LARTCS.org. If you search the site for LARTCS, you should be able to find lots of info.

Its no longer weekly, they test when they feel like it. Keep your ears open at the end of the net and they will announce when the next test is. Ive heard them do it at 1pm and theres times ive heard them do it at 3am, so you really have to pay attention.
