• 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:

Curious if anyone has been monitoring the Occupy Portland goings-on downtown. Any tips on which PPB or BOEC talkgroups are being used regularly? Any FPS federal stuff other than the usual 408.200 for Region 10? I imagine things will get interesting when the looming deadline comes tomorrow (Sat.) for demonstrators to be out of the parks.

I heard the hulabaloo on C DISP when they kicked out the protesters from Jamison Square last week. There was some interesting stuff.

One of my favorites was when one of the captains came up on the radio and told officers that even the media had to leave the park because it is closed to everyone. If the media was found in the park they where to be arrested as well.

I too will be listening. Looks like pretty much all the activity is on Central Dispatch and Central Tac 1. I guess it really has to hit the fan for them to start using SERT/TOD. Getting some traffic on Portland Business Alliance - Patrol. Anyone monitoring MCSO? If you know of other TGIDs in use for this event please post.

EDIT: Also, there's this: Occupy Portland Official - live streaming video powered by Livestream

It doesn't sound like the Occu-morons are going to go peacefully after listening to their chants on the live stream.

"Occu-morons" ? Is that anything like a tea bag-er.
There are obvious differences between the two. The majority of the Occupy crowd are a bunch of anarchist,dope smoking kids who probibly never worked a day in their lives. So far they still have no direction or purpose other than chanting capitalism sucks. They spend their time defecating on police cars,smashing out windows,spray painting graffiti on buildings and getting arrested!

On the other hand the Tea Party is a organised group of fiscally conservative patriots who want smaller government. Generally all of the Tea Party protests have been peaceful and respectful.

Hey, how about we discuss stuff about radio monitoring of a protest rather than spew stupid political nonsense? There are appropriate places for that. This forum is not one of them.


Thanks.

On the news I heard the PIO say that PPB had help from various agencies including Vancouver and Hillboro. I am sure MCSO is down there since the Court House is right along the parks as is Federal Agencies since there is also a Federal Court House there as well. I have heard traffic on the radio about Salem also being there.

Just watching the coverage -- quite a few protesters gathered downtown now and refusing to clear the streets. Yup, they specifically mentioned and showed Salem PD as being there, too.
