• 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:

FYI operations on MAC 13 on Saturday 4/26 from 0600-1500 related to this.

OPERATION YELLOW JACKET
A Cooperative Mass Casualty Exercise for 2008 La Plata County / Archuleta County

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE April 22, 2008
MEDIA CONTACT: Nancy Shanks, Exercise PIO 970-749-3579

LA PLATA COUNTY/ ARCHULETA COUNTY - Local emergency response agencies, hospitals and government offices are preparing for Operation Yellow Jacket, a mass casualty exercise on Saturday, April 26. This exercise will help participants assess the cooperative actions of La Plata and Archuleta County resources in response to a mass casualty incident. More than 30 agencies are participating-ranging from emergency medical resources, local and state law enforcement, fire departments, hospitals, search and rescue, and dispatch centers. The Exercise will focus on incident management, patient transport, patient tracking and mass patient care.
Public in and around Bayfield High School, Mercy Regional Medical Center, Animas Surgical Hospital and Pagosa Mountain Hospital will see activity from emergency response personnel. Unless you need to access one of the hospitals for an emergency or appointment, we are asking the public please stay clear of the above locations from 6 AM to 2 PM.
"Our primary objectives are to facilitate cooperation and communication between our agencies, organizations, and the public as we test emergency plans for La Plata and Archuleta Counties," said Drew Petersen, Archuleta County Director of Emergency Management and coordinator of the exercise. "Going through an exercise like this is a great way to sustain and improve our skills in these areas."

What CC's utilize Mac 13?
No such thing as a CC using a certain MAC. Obviously MAC 13 is a SW MAC, so it's more likely to be heard by hobbyists in the SW region, but can be heard anywhere in the state if there is a radio affiliating to MAC 13 in that particular area.
