• 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:

any one ever hear your street you live on on your scanner

More than once.

Most recently, a gentleman three houses down passed away at home. His wife came home and found him dead in the recliner.

About a year ago, driving home from the office, I heard fire dispatch to MY HOUSE for a house fire. Seems my neighbor across the street was burning leaves and the smoke made the neighbor behind think my house was burning.

Four or five years ago, another across the street neighbor took a tree through her roof.

Early in my scanner career, I worked mids at DMAFB in Tucson. I was getting ready to go to work when I heard a 'possible B&E' on the corner. Decided to wait for the all clear before I left.

Yep. I was eating lunch at work one day and the VFD was toned out to a possible DOA at the house next door to me. Turns out the elderly lady passed away in her sleep. About swallowed my fork.

One day coming home from working at the wonderful store of Krogers, i heard a dispatch for station 3 to respond to a "traffic accident" on my road. rode by the scene, ended up the accident dealt with someone getting hurt riding a four-wheeler. i do live in the country so i guess that would be considered a traffic accident.

We have a good number of old (elderly) people who live in my development. Yes, there are a good number of rescue calls here. In the past five years there have been at least fifteen for them as well for a person who cannot stay sober on my street who also has martial difficulties. There is a ballfield located here and is used on a fairly regular basis for a landing zone.

My next door neighbor, I was outside one day when a group of un-marked cars went flying into his drive-way. He had 153 pot plants growing in his house and had sold to an undercover officer. He was a good guy, I never knew he had this going on inside of his house.
He is now in his second year of a five year sentence of prison.

Over the past few years i've heard 3 house fires on my street(all of them working fires), 1 of them that burned the house to the ground. Also, more recently a good friend of mine had a car fall on top of him at the end of my street. I didn't hear the initial toneouts but when sirens came roaring down the street i turned on the scanner to discover what had happened.

They were able to bring him back but he had too severe of brain damage and they pulled the plug several days later. His son did CPR(and got the car off of him) until fire/ems arrived.

I love listening to all the "cool" stuff on the scanner, the accidents, fights, burglaries... however it makes you think twice about how "cool" it really is when its on your street and it involves people you know.

There have been a number of calls to this street and this building. Mostly they have been Fire/EMS calls for assistance or ambulance, but there have been domestic abuse, noise/loud party, magazine sales and one 10-200 smell of Marijuana calls. The 10-200 was in this building just upstairs from me, wasn't Marijuana was someone cooking Indian food. Still can't figure that one out :lol:

Been a few calls on my street that I have missed. One happened around 3am, the little old lady two houses up suffered a stroke.

Two other calls, relating to me, so quite obviously I missed those calls. LOL

My neighborhood is a different story. There have been many medical calls and three house fires all within two blocks from me. Not many police calls, as the neighborhood is fairly middle to upper calls, and not much crime, aside from some littering and minor vandalism.
