    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:

Anyone monitoring this forum in the Orangeburg area?

I passed through there on Saturday evening. I heard 2 talkgroups that I hope someone can help identify. I was driving and couldn't write it down, but I think I remember the talkgroup numbers correctly.

The first was 6704. It was an ambulance crew coordinating a emergency transport through Orangeburg County, Neeses area. At first, the unit advised someone that they would be running Code 3 through the county, as if they were coming from some other area. They then arranged a spot to meet, presumably to pick up another EMT/Paramedic? I don't know where they were transporting from or to. Could be a county EMS unit or a private service, I don't know. This channel was referred to as ROAM, they may have used a different 62xx or 63xx channel previously.

The other channels was 37616. This sounded like security for a college. Sounded like an officer reporting building checks periodically, with references to "Halls" as in residence halls or academic "halls". Maybe Claflin or SC State security?

Any help is appreciated.

Aha, that sounds about right. I believe that the transport involved a motorcycle accident victim, so that would make sense with a race track.

Thanks

That is correct

That is the 800 talk group for Community Transport. They have a bunch of fly cars also. So it was probably a Paramedic meeting up with the unit. They now are using clear speach like the county EMS units. They run a lot of calls for the county now also. You will hear them on county EMS dispatch and the talk to thier dispatcher.
