• 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:

Does anyone listen to the Channel Industries Mutual Aid System on a regular basis? Is there any way to expand the list of participants to include a list of vehicles?

Possibly each plant has 3 or 4 fire trucks - plus ambulances and rescue trucks.

Note - CIMA just licensed a UHF TRS - control point and transmitter are both in Deer Park IIRC

The apparatus lists are not readily-accessible public information, which kind of makes sense since they are privately-owned and work almost exclusively on private property. The firefighters themselves are state-commissioned and train at TEEX up in College Station alongside volunteer and paid municipal firefighters. And they can and have responded to incidents on public property at the request of that agency's fire chief.. one particularly nasty incident back in 2003 involving a collision between two tanker trucks carrying molten sulfur and gasoline on SH 225 in Pasadena comes to mind.

The new system will be TRBO. Don't know what that means for HFD Hazmat, who have the analog channels programmed into their department radios, or the plants that use non-Motorola conventional systems (if you listen in at 6:00 PM check-in time you can hear a plethora of MDC600, MDC1200, GE-STAR, Kenwood Fleetsync, and DTMF ANI signaling.)

if i had to guess they will probably install them into the HFD hazmat trucks and have them installed at the consoles in the plants as well otherwise interop will not happen and could be a problem
