• 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:

Olmsted County is on the ARMER (allied radio matrix for emergency response) system. This system is a APCO P25 standard. to be able to listen to this system you need a digital scanner. The system frequency is 853.6125. TGID's are: FD Dsip (20476) FD OP 2 (20472) FD OP 3 (20482) Mayo Clnc (20492) Med Update (20434) Med Air (20020) OLM PTAC 1 (20550) OLM ATAC 1 (20402) Airport 1 (20448) LE Disp (20506). Those are the tgid's i primary listen to, they are the same as "zone a" in a fire dept. radio.

Thank you fwfdengine2, now I just need to figure out how to program my new scanner. I have the Uniden BC346XT and it's not the easiest thing to program. Not sure what you mean by TGID'S but will try to figure it out. Thanks again for your help

mmtsc, its 346 not 246. prob a typo err. but he/she still cannot monitor armer with what they have now. i would suggest BCD396XT I was just in rochester the other day and it works great. and always has statewide for armer.

TGID stands for talk groud iD. a talkgroup is a channel on a trunked radio system (TRS) you can read more about trunking here Trunking Basics - The RadioReference Wiki

yeah, that was a typo...

about the only analog VHF in Rochester is LEC 2, Mayo One helicopter and Gold Cross EMS, which are listed in the database. Mayo Clinic also operates their own trunked radio system, which you CAN listen to and hear Mayo security operations and the internal downtown EMS response team. there also may be a UHF station link for Rochester fire, but i have never listened for it.
