• 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:

Time to do updates, since I have been away on Personal Family Problems.

Durring the TS Lee & Flooding of 2011, I noticed I heard nothing on the EDACS First Energy (Met-Ed) System.

When I ran into a FE/Met-Ed Field Tech, he said that they are on a new system, the portable looks like a Harris Open Sky Radio.


Can anyone confirm that First Energy (Met-Ed) has moved onto the State OpenSky system?

Thanks.

I don't know about Met-Ed, but here in western Pa, PENELEC (also First Energy) moved to StarNet months ago if not longer now. It's my understanding that they left the Commonwealth onto their towers and in return they received access to the StarNet system.

I was under the impression that First Energy would be moving their subsidiaries over to STARNET at some point. Looks like that is now.

All things point to this.... For All the counties they cover in PA, having 1 radio system that can be used statewide by all Field and office units must work pretty good for them.
