• 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 was confused too at first, because most listings still have the individual city's FD talkgroups. All ALCO fire are dispatched out of the dispatch center at Livermore Labs, and therefore live on the same talkgroup. I think each city retains its fireground talkgroups, but I'm not sure - I don't listen to county fire much if at all.
I used to live in the EastBay back in the late70's and until late 90's . Sorry can't help you their , i am in Nebraska now following Madison PD /S.O. & Norfolk PD. If you have any info back here please send them.

Now, I swear that I keep hearing Berkeley PD using the UC trunked system... Am I wrong?
Nope, not wrong, just misguided... ;-) UC Berkeley's TRS has a patch to Berkeley PD's primary. It is always active, so it sounds like Berkeley is on a TRS, but they aren't.

Well... Since you're an FD listener, I'm having a heck of a time determining the logic behind the ALCO fire dispatch channels. I thought they were differentiated by zone, but I'll hear a San Lorenzo dispatch, followed by something much farther south...

-----------------------------------------------------

ALco trs has 4 available dispatch tg's (control 1-4). control 1 and 2 are main dispatch while 3 and 4 are overflow and future use tg's control 4 is actually used the majority of the time when a radio emergency button is pressed. control 4 starts beeping and all traffic is stopped if any there.

Alco fire, llnl, camp parks and UC are dispatched on control 2 while fremont, and newark is dispatched on control 1. Everyone uses tac channel 5-16. Individual tacs for cities are gone and have been implemented elsewhere on the TRS.

ok had a brainlapse for a second. the dept breakdown on the 2 dispatch tg's are as follows

control 1- alameda city, alco battalion 1, U.C.
control 2. Fremont, Alco bat 2, Camp Parks, LLNL

Newark still has there own tg since they declined going to a new dispatch center.
