• 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:

Over the past few days I have copied 89 hits on 64176 M-Call 1 with prison comms or referring to it as "GCI Control Center" which is Grafton Corrections.

Can anyone else confirm this? Is the RR database wrong or could this be part of the Grafton Honor Farm's closing, consolidating with Lorain Corrections?

M-call 1 is used as a mutual aid channel for central ohio... You will hear Madison correctional calling into the OSP for radio checks as well. They usualy do testing right around shift change, and Do testing and checking after their statewide counts are done at 4pm and 9pm each night. I sometimes listen to them on my marcs radio, And frequently hear other correctional facilities do the same thing. I have also heard dayton correctional. Since the OSP supervises the ohio correctional facilities you will hear them communicating frequently on the M-call channels

All the traffic copied has been routine. Such as yard calls, pill calls, or man down calls. Having listened to GCI, NCCTF and LORCI since the inception of MARCS I have never heard Grafton calling on a M-Call talk group.

OSP does not supervise the correctional facilities. It's a separate state agency with their own communications department.

Someone with a console probably has a patch setup and forgot to knock it down when they were finished with it.
