    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:

Hey guys, a quick question for Dutchess County listeners on the NYCOMCO EDACS system. I've got sites 1, 4, and 5 programmed in my PSR, and I get all the nice stuff that's only on there (Poughkeepsie Town and City, Kingston City, Hyde Park, etc), but I haven't heard anything on TGIDs 447, 453, 455, or 457- DC Sheriff for the first three and DC 911 Polling for the last. Are these talkgroups not simulcasts of the VHF frequencies? If not, does anybody know the general conditions under which they are used? Backups perhaps? I wouldn't be bothered if I got perfect service everywhere, but sometimes I can hear EDACS fine when VHF is all fuzzy due to my location, and it's nice to know what I can rely on for which stations. Thanks, I appreciate the clarification!

The only thing you will hear on DCSO's TGID's are the supervisors and the deputies that are assigned to the County Office Building and Department of Social services and the reason for that is for interoperability with the city of poughkeeosie
