• 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:

Anyone catch what actually happened with a Loveland Hazmat call in the area of crossroads blvd? The call seemed to be dispatched to responding units by landline and dispatch was avoiding radio use.
I heard traffic on TG 7&8 but all of the landline privacy made me curious.

Troop is right; if the call involved anything that might detonate, radio silence when approaching the scene is standard procedure. You might see signs warning to shut off 2-way radios, cellphones, etc. when you approach a road construction area where blasting is involved. Perhaps something like this was involved in this incident.

That makes sense. However, I would at least expect to hear the call dispatched over the radio. LPD bomb squad was called but was released soon after arrival. The incident didn't sound too bad at the end ( from what I could hear)

It's been my experience that those loveland fire talkgroups 7 and 8 are only used for training (assuming that is what you mean by refering to TG 7&8 above).

That has been my experience as well with TG's 7 and 8. It might have been a VERY realistic training exercise then.
