• 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:

Just did a fast check on this system. Call sign 079 stated "transporting" and then "at destination". 158 was asked "did you get your patient?" Call signs ranging from 036 to 165 noted in this short check. Hope this is of some help.

RE: Porter County Area EMS and EMA Follow Up

Additional traffic appears to indicates that this entity operates in Hobart, Merrillville and Valpo. Someone talked briefly of a contract signing within the next week or two. This appears to be a private ambulance company operating in Lake and Porter County. All traffic was heard on the Valpo site.

Just a thought...

Could it be Prompt EMS? I am out that way a couple times a week and can't seem to locate them on the scanner. I have the freqs. that it listed for them but pick up nothing. A post I came up with from someone in South Bend said that they were using an LTR system but he didn't know which towers they were hitting. I sit on mill property and do a lot of different searches. I am going to put in the Porter county and Lake county towers and listen to see what I come up with. If I learn anything I will post it back here!

Porter County EMS and EMA are on their own VHF analog conventional repeaters. Prompt is on a MotoTrbo system for Lake, Porter and Laporte counties not sure what they are currently doing in South Bend. And the other traffic is probably another private ambulance company like Superior.

More Info on Prompt Ambulance

Does anyone have more info on Prompt Ambulance in Northwest Indiana? An earlier post mentioned Moto Trbo? I do know they are using something digital on VHF-HI.

Porter County EMS uses frequency 155.235, and EMA uses 151.740 (as well as Safe-t). This may be prompt or superior, or one of the other private ambulance services.
