• 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:

Could the same 18xxxxx RID be in more than one system NOT in the same radio?

I looked at my database of 7200 radio ID's and did not find any duplicates. What I do find, because of mutual aid agreements, is that some radio ID's are used on multiple agency talkgroups. Mutual aid is used in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties quite frequently.

Right. I pretty much found the same thing.
With three major trunked systems here (Parma, MARCS IP, and GCRCN() probably sold and serviced by different outfits who knows what could happen. :)

All 3 systems that you mentioned follow the MARCS-IP numbering scheme (see WIKI) which should prevent duplications within the 7 digit numbering scheme.
