    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.

Fire was/is on the southside of Grayling moving towards the lake and Camp Grayling. I do know they evacuated several homes, 6 were damaged. Not sure of the current status of this fire.

Lower Michigan fires

I've been listening to Talk Group 1217 last night and again this morning. I'm picking it up from the Negaunee Tower here in the UP. There's been a lot of radio traffic from all across northern Lower Michigan. Much of the talk has been about a fire in Isabella County (Mt. Pleasant area). Last night I heard various local fire departments calling in to say they are "clearing the Isabella County fire and heading for our station".

I've heard them talking to Traverse City, Mio, Grayling and a couple other locations; mostly DNR units, but also some local fire departments.

Hearing that particular talk group (1217) up here in the UP is new to me. I don't remember hearing it prior to this fire season.
