• 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:

They don't use their radios much. I have heard city crews advise dispatch when they have completed a route and the amount of salt used. The routes are all numbered and don't provide conditions, street names, or routes. This is probably the most boring service to monitor.

Yep, when I lived in SW Ohio years ago they would discuss road and weather conditions and you could pickup some very valuable information if you were planning to venture out. Especially with the hilly conditions in that area.

I think we should start a game of rate the odot district on radio traffic quality ..
so far i would give:
a F to D1 Allen county ( tg 53249 ) for excessive foul language and smart remarks.
a B to D7 Shelby county (tg 53378) for good jokes and witty replies.

I would have to say district 6 is the most professional. Not much joking around and everything is straight to the point, I do listen to all 12 districts though and each is different.
