    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:

I am setting up a scanner for a friend who visits the Dakota County area at least twice a year. He has a WS 1080 scanner. On the ARMER system I see the Dakota County has two sites in the county. My main concern is which talk groups to load into the program for him. Not sure as to what Dakota County is considered to be ie Central- South- Southeast . Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration

Use site 1-3.

"Not sure as to what Dakota County is considered to be ie Central- South- Southeast" Are you asking about which regional interops? Metro.
Yes that is what I am thinking of. Or any other talk groups you think I should program in his scanner

I always suggest programming all the statewide interoperability talkgroups along with the Metro regional interoperability talkgroups. If something interesting is on-going, it usually finds its way on to one of these. For example a pursuit is often patched into L-TAC 1.

Depending on where one is in Dakota County, programming Hennepin East and the Hennepin talkgroups might bring in some interesting listening. Minneapolis and Ramsey (St. Paul) may be possible, but a long shot.
