• 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:

Having challenges programming a Uniden HomePatrol to receive MIPD. Longtime scanner user but new to trunked programming.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you.

Mercer Island is dispatched by Norcom. They can be heard on the Seattle / King County (KCERS) trunking system. They are best heard on the EPSCA Simulcast site. The dispatching is on the same talk group as Kirkland (19472 - NC POL 2). Listen for the "Ida" or "i" units. Make sure you update your Sentinel database so that it you have the latest and greatest information. You should then be good to go.

If you at all interested in the FD, they too are dispatched by Norcom - listen for the 90 series units.
