• 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:

Listening to them on channel 50 over the last few days. Sounds like a lot of work - some strange badge numbers also I'm hearing - not the normal trooper badges or constables.... Any idea's ??
And they go back and forth so fast!

Some DEEP, DMV, Comstable, States Attorney, SWAT, and Resident Troopers - besides the "normal" CSP units.

What unit numbers were you hearing that you didn't know?

They have been swapping out mobile and handheld radios one for one for a few weeks.

The work is ongoing almost every weekday..

Same unit numbers as usual.

Often times Saturday morning is new car day on SWComm1. You will usually first hear them call in to have the NCC lock the radio in the old car. They then call to unlock the new radio giving the plate and badge.

So does this mean that I have to update my scanners or do they keep the same frequencies ?

Motorola has a neat product that lets you take the show on the road so to speak. They make a laptop that functions as a mobile dispatch console. Given access to the internet, they can run a dispatch operation from anywhere. NCC staff have used these at the location of radio programming. NCC is managed by CTS but I believe they are contract employees from Adesta, G4S.

If I recall, back when the system first started, they had two buses that were to be used for that function. I don't think they stayed around very long. They then had the two CTS trucks (big truck and little truck) used for that which I believe they still have. You would see one parked at Rentschler field for game days. It has the large sat dish on the roof. I had to go to the Rocky Hill VA for something and saw one there as well. Different animals than the DEMHS ERVs.
