• 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:

Just monitored DeForest post advise units to expedite to the Waukesha Post in full BDA's. Yikes.

Anyone monitoring riot traffic (non opensky) ?

They were patched in to one of the talk groups on the MCTRS so I heard much of it play out.
I don't live anywhere near that area but I heard sirens heading that direction. If you have the mobile frequencies of the MCTRS, evidently there is a relay someplace that feeds MFD and MPD into this system. Comes in very clear though it is from OPEN SKY so every once in a while, the voices sound funny.

MPD was patching one of the main command channels from opensky onto the MCTRS using F2 which is commonly used for patching between systems. However, the patch was terminated after midnight when law officials realized that this patch of F2 was being used on "social media". Other patches were heard from the MFD using vsrious FIRECOM channels on the county system.
Otherwise the sheriff was/is heard on various countywide channels and the parks channel on the MCTRS. These sheriff channels continue to be active tonight.
