• 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:

No, the dispatch talkgroup is patched to VHF for fire pagers. The tac channels don't have pagers on them so there's no need for a VHF patch.

Not too sure about Sherburn Co, but in Scott County I was able to monitor the fireground channels on VHF analog using an Icom 910 hooked to a GP 9. At first I wasn't sure until I heard the activity on RR's streaming feed, a couple seconds behind the analog.

Not sure about the usefulness, and I only tried it once about a year ago.

Does anyone know if Itasca county patches any talkgroups?
I would assume that they would have the dispatch talkgroup patched to VHF for paging just like other cities/counties do.

The only ones that don't are the big cities like Minneapolis and St Paul. That's because they employ a full staff of full time firefighters, so they aren't paging volunteer/paid on call firefighters to respond to calls.
