• 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:

I have been listening to South Ops channels off and on today and I keep hearing the following units being talked to by Richland and possibly other police departments.

Command - Appears to be what they call Cambria
"800" - Not entirely sure, but this unit seems to be in charge

I checked both Cambria and Somerset and can't find a single reference to "800" or anything even similar.

Is this a temporary unit or is there sometimes this unit othertimes?

EDIT: Listening to more they are now calling the unit "Command 800" but yesterday I did hear during a DUI checkpoint officers calling a Cambria Dispatcher, "Command".

Op1-3?

Anybody know who exactly the OP units where? There appeared to be OP 1, 2, and 3.

Cambria County Units appeared to identify with badge numbers and some car numbers. Same with Fire and EMS.

Were the OPs federal units?

Wow

That information is classified.
Didn't quite expect an answer like that, but I can see it.

Anyway, surprised the entire thing was even on a Cambria OPs channel anyway, but I guess they can't really provide encrypted radios for every single agency, since it sounded like Dale, Richland, UPJ (honestly first time I ever heard them on something other than their own campus even though I knew they could), Stoneycreek, Johnstown PD, Richland Fire, possibly others were involved.
