• 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:

Does anybody have any info for the LAFD Locution Dispatch System, or have a recording of a dispatch?

Thanks,
fwfdengine2
There's a 3½ year old "non-endorsement" description of LAPD's use of Locution software from an LAFD PSO (Brian Humphrey, I assume) near the very bottom of the page at
Locution Systems [Archive] - Firehouse Forums - Firefighting Discussion

I've got two recordings of sample digitized dispatch audio files at
http://harrymarnell.net/locution-demo1.wav
http://harrymarnell.net/locution-demo1.wav

These are also several years old and I have no idea if they represent the current state of the art, or the system as currently used by LAFD.

EDIT: Found a sample file on Locution's website: http://locution.com/techoverview/dispatch.wav

Some other Locution systems across the country include - Palm Beach County, FL
Dallas, TX - Fort Worth, TX and Houston, but Houstons system sounds like a retarded speak and spell

kinda cool how the system works, but i prefer the old voice dispatching method.
