• 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've done quite a bit of searching in the past week and I can't find any frequencies or licenses for the upcoming Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland .I've searched for Horseshoe Casino, Rock Gaming, and Cleveland Ceasers, with google and the FCC wireless search and came up with nothing. I can't imagine the licenses not being granted by now since this thing's supposed to be open in 5 days (may 14). Maybe this stuff isn't sorted out yet after all but if someone finds something out, ya know what to do ;) I'm after specifically their security but anything will do. Even if its a custodian or something. Thanks!

The Toledo Casino is going to using a Mototrbo system. The lucas county database has the frequencies, but no TG listed. Possibly they will use the same system and frequencies.

They were supposedly looking at a local trunked system, or putting in their own system, but I guess they decided to try the Sprint system instead. It will be interesting to see if they stay with that or eventually put in something else.

*Disclaimer* - I had heard this from an outside source, not direct from anyone at the Casino.

I will say that I am NOT familiar with the Sprint Direct PTT system, but if it operates the same as the older Nextell system that Sprint took over, I do not see it working out well. When the company I used to work for had Nextells, there was a delay between press the button and getting the 'roger beep' before you could talk or else you cut off part of the conversation, that would be bad when time is essential for handling an emergency. also controling and switching between talkgroups was not an easy task. Certainly not as easy as changing channels on a true radio.

Just talked to my friend who is going to be working security there..They are indeed using Sprint 2-Way PTT devices..Hopefully they wont work very well inside there and have to get real radios..
