    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:

Hi all -

I moved to Sussex County last year, and picked up a Pro-197 over the summer. Got it all programmed up, and listening to anything that's not "secure." I'm having a hard time getting all of the local PDs units in Sussex County figured out on the DSP dispatch channel. For example, I know that 921 is Millsboro, and I think 947 is Lewes and 908 is Georgetown. Does anyone have the correct list of the local PDs and their designations? (Any other tips on DSP designations would be helpful too.)

Thanks, and good scanning!

TY, Dave! That is very helpful. Sort of an off topic question though. Are there any fire, ems, or police departments in Sussex (or Kent & New Castle) still self dispatched or are they all on the County centers now? I think a few are still self dispatched, correct?

Dover Fire is the only fire/EMS that is self-dispatched. There are occasions where Kent Center will dispatch Dover Fire (station 46) using Kent Center's own tones.

AFAIK, Wilmington fire and EMS is paid and probably is self-dispatched. I don't listen to New Castle or Sussex Counties at this time.
