    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 RR database shows the TGID for FD-North is 10203 and FD-South is 10204. Lately I have not been hearing any radio traffic on FD-North (10203), but I am hearing radio traffic from units on the north side of the city on FD-South (10204). Can anyone explain this? Did TGIDs get changed for these channels?

Thanks.

Greg

I too had been wondering why I never see FD-North used.

When do units use FD-North/South vs the FD-Ops TGs? I’m assuming FD-Ops are for working incidents. What are the fire detail TGs used for?

The TGs I hear most often used are: IFEMS-DISP, FD-South and FD-OP01.

North is used for single apparatus incidents north of I 70, South is for single apparatus incidents south of I 70. (At least that was the original division line.) North and South are also used for minor admin messaging and information talk. North actually gets used a lot, and you just happen to see the South end of the patch. I catch it from the other end usually. The Ops TG's are for larger working incidents with multiple apparatus. Massive Incidents go to the Tacticals and Interop Red.

The Details were originally meant for events, special ops, etc.... But I have actually never seen them used. Most of those go to the Tacticals.
