• 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:

It appears to me that the Romeo site has some issues. It's not advertising any adjacent sites, and they aren't advertising the romeo site. It makes it more difficult for the radios to find that site while operating...

Has anyone heard anything more on the Romeo site?

Its still down, techs have been working on it trying to get it back up and running. I heard that they are going to up the power to the Dexter Tower to handle the workload a little better for more output.

I don't see how increasing the power on the Dexter (Ann Arbor) site would help the situation with the Romeo site...

Transfer of power by boosting it will increase reception to portable and mobils when the tower is down.

Its the same thing our county does when the west tower is down. The central and south towers power is boosted and reception out west increases.

Tower should be fixed tomorrow afternoon.

The point was that the Dexter tower was too far away to have any effect on the Romeo tower. I could see some benefit to upping the power on the surrounding sites (Mt. Clemens, Holly and Richmond sites), but even that would be minimal...

I'm hearing more reports of problems with the MPSCS today. Some are getting very agitated, and outspoken! Can't say as I blame them.

The Romeo site is still not completly up. It's only showing Mt. Clemens as a neighbor.
It looks like their having microwave trouble.

In addition, the Mt. Clemens tower is the only tower I can hear that is advertising the Romeo tower as an adjacent site. That will make the handoff from one tower to another less than smooth depending on where a unit is moving from/to.
