• 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:

Of course, this doesn't really affect scanner users at all but I thought some here might like to know this regardless...

At around 10:45 it seems the issues have been resolved and should be back up to normal.

I heard a new talk group 18478 on the Garland County Simulcast sites today. Sorting by TG, I notice the TG's end at 18475 (Lonsdale FD in Garland County) in the RR DB, then resume at 18601 (Sheriff Talk) in Sebastian County. Anybody know what it is?

What did it sound like? Fire? Or PD? Because there are 3 more FD's and PD's left to transition. Mountain Pine, Hot Springs Village, and Diamond Head. As well as Garland County Detention, Roads etc... Once they all come on, that will leave just LifeNet EMS pure VHF. So unless LifeNet comes on Garland County must maintain at least the Countywide OEM repeater for interop with them.

Mountain Pine FD is already full time AWIN. All the FD's still have their VHF systems in place and will keep them running unless there is a failure with the VHF equipment. They may/can use this to interop with LifeNet. Not sure, but roads and landfill should be full time already too.
