• 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:

The Illinois Marathon will be held Saturday, April 11, 2009, in Champaign-Urbana. Newspaper articles have stated that police will be providing traffic control at major intersections while volunteers will man side streets. I expect there to be a ton of medical personnel involved, such as Illini EMS, Pro Ambulance, and Arrow Ambulance.

I have posted possible frequencies here:
Champaign-Urbana - The RadioReference Wiki

If you know of other frequencies that may be used or hear related traffic the weekend of the event, please post your findings (either here or to the wiki section).

EMS Operations was on Incident 3.It sounds like since I talked to one of the organizers that this marathon will become a yearly thing!

I was in the stadium listening until noon but didn't get to look at the scanner much to see what talkgroups or frequencies I was hearing but as much as I was able to determine:
*Starcom21 - ISP D10 Detail A (ISP units)
*451.350 Memorial Stadium channel
*451.450 Illini EMS
*Marathon staff at Memorial Stadium were seen carrying Motorola Saber radios with 800 MHz stubby antenna. Unknown what system or talkgroup they were on...anyone hear the staff on 800 MHz? Nothing noted in the 800 MHz band via CloseCall except the MDICE TRS inputs.
*One of the UIPD officer's radio display looked like it said "8 INC4". I couldn't make out any more except that one of the lines was showing the radio id alias that was transmitting on that talkgroup. PD was on MDICE Incident 4 while EMS was on Incident 3.
*Heard some transmissions around 6:30am on MDICE Champaign PW 1 but didn't hear if it was related to the race. The main public works ops before the race were on MDICE TG 22712
*453.775 MTD buses was an interesting source about the street closures
