• 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:

Jackson Co is in the planning stages for replacement, in the next few years they will either move to MPSCS or implement a county-wide analog system (likely based on Ingham Co's success.)

Well, I dont know about dead, and granted I havent had alot of time to listen, but since Sat. I havent heard anything. Obviously this was a pretty busy channel and so something happened.

They just dispatched a call on 154.7250 MHz. Apparently, they are using this as their dispatch frequency for right now? Maybe 155.5950 MHz is down for maintenance?

I have been listening to 154.7250 MHz, for the last two hours and all of their dispatch activity has been on this frequency. In fact, they just dispatched a PI down in Pulaski Twp. That being said, I don't know if this is a permanent move or a temporary one, due to equipment issues on 155.5950 MHz?

From what I hear it might be the result of a lightning strike.

Heard them most of the evening driving around the county doing the radio testing, they were finding some dead spots.

So what's up with Jackson Fire now? They sound like they're off frequency by 2-3KHz

Fire Dispatch sounds really horrible over here where I live. I wonder if they have gone narrowband or their transmitter is out of alignment? When the base transmits, it sounds like they have a towel over the microphone, with a lot of deviation.

Just listening to Summit Twp. FD out on a call, it sounds like they are simulcasting off more than one tower at a time. I am hearing one repeater drop before the other. Sounds like they may have made some modifications to their transmitters?

Must have been it - I was in the newsroom yesterday wondering what agency was transmitting because it sounded like Jackson Co but was coming in too clear to be ;>

jackson County Fire sounds horrible in A2. You can actually hear the heterodyne beats once in a while. Yes they do sound like they're transmitting on 2 towers at the same time like St. Clair County FD is.
