• 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:

I'm hearing a couple of new talk groups on the Downriver system:

49792 and 48096. Havn't quite figured out what the use may be. Been mostly just banter back and forth since I first noticed it yesterday. No activity after about 5pm yesterday. Some more talk today. Calling each other by first names.
Almost sounds like room to room comms inside a building. Some "where you at?" stuff.
Something about "get a ladder" yesterday.

Any of the Downriver Communities have a carnival or festival planned this week or weekend? If so, that would be a good tip-off as to who might be using the system. I can remember when Lincoln Park had a festival last year, and I heard some rather rare "Event" talkgroups being used. This maybe the case this year as well.

Actually, this may not be new. Just new to me. I'm on vacation this week, and this is the first I've been listening during the day, Monday thru Friday since I went digital.
A little bit today, like the first post, folks calling each other by first names. Wyandotte's Street Fair starts tomorrow. You may be right.
