    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 see where Henrico Fire & EMS has a lot of talkgroups. Does anyone know if any of these talkgroups are dedicated to track operations at RIR during the race?

I always listen to the Henrico "Police/Fire Shared" talkgroups for police activity which is very interesting. But I've never listened to any of the other EMS talkgroups on race day and was wondering if they were worth listening to during the race.

I believe Fire/EMS uses one of the Police/Fire Tacs for operations at RIR. They've also used Fire Tac 12 and Fire Tac 13 for previous events.

I was at the race last night and this is the activity I heard.

Regionwide 1 (20112)- Mention of transporting from the track to lockup, I'm assuming HPD

Regionwide 2 (201128)- Fire & EMS calls inside and outside of the track.

PD/FD Tac 2 (17264) - Law Enforcement in the parking lots and inside track

PD/FD Tac 3 (17280) - Air Ops? Heard dispatcher advise unit they could return to base, but that she'd need them back up in the air at 75 laps to go. Would advise when 100 laps were left.

PD/FD Tac 4 (17296) - Traffic Control

I didn't hear a single peep on P/F Tac 5, BoxAlarm. Who was utilizing that patch? Anyone else have any unique catches?

130.875 was good at times to listen to some of the helicopter traffic. And you don't need a digital scanner to receive it.

Ah! I was curious as to what frequency they were using, but didn't have enough radios with my to dedicate one for searching the air band. I'll make note of it for next time.

I wasn't at the race this past Saturday, but at home I could hear Henrico EMS activity at the track on Talkgroup 17648 as Dave mentioned above from 2 years ago.

The helicopter channel 130.875 continued to be entertaining as well.

Primary Fire/EMS Ops were on 20176 "Regionwide 2" with 20192 "Regionwide 3" being used as overflow. HFD Tac 13 was patched with RW2 for communications between Henrico Communications and the track and units responding from outside of the track to incidents within the track perimeter.
