• 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:

Black Mountain

I'm sure it was just my imagination, but did it seem to you that there was more activity than there should have been for such a small town? I spent 25 years in a 40 Officer Department, and what I heard would have been a busy night.. Maybe I just don't know Black Mountain, but it did not fit.

I am wondering if Black Mtn also Dispatches for Montreat College. I heard them dispatch 800 units which is BMPD but then i also heard then calling 300 units. But the 300 units used more of plain text instead of 10 codes

Ahh yes, that makes sense. I did hear 300 I.D.'s being used. I was thinking that maybe the S.O. had taken over contractually providing Law Enforcement Coverage, and just went to VIPER for the Black Mountain radio system, but I have not seen any news coverage on that, and that would be BIG News if that happened. Think your right with the Montreat Idea

Adam- days patrol
Baker- night patrol
Charlie- days patrol
David- night patrol
Paul- power squad swing shift
Sam- court security
400- jail staff
500- CID/Detectives
William- Woodfin PD

If you would please, let us know if the RIDs are noticeably different on the 300 and 800 units (and anyone else who might be on there) so we can update the wiki with them. Don't have a lot of Buncombe County RIDs right now. thanks.

Black Mountain

Well, AJIComm1, your were correct on the idea that Montreat was dispatched by Black Mountain. The Black Mountain units are 800's. Unit 333 was dispatched in Montreat to a specific location. Due to an unfortunate series of events beginning with power flickering at 0015 hours, I lost my EZ Scan display with the radio i.d's, still trying to figure out why it's not displaying on the TRX 2 playback, so be it. Everything recovered fine and is working now.
So, as far as radios are concerned, Black Mountain and Montreat are one and the same. They were using the same dispatcher up until 0015.....
