• 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:

Good afternoon, everyone! What a BEAUTIFUL day in Eastern Nebraska!

I have a question about ORION TalkGroup 617. In the DB for ORION, 617 is listed as being "LE Event #1".

Today, around the 1330 timeframe, I listened to at least five (5) OPD Officers being dispatched to a location on North 52nd, in response to a "Mr. Bo Duke" wanting assult report taken.

Considerig this was an Event TG, was what I listened to some sort of special operation? Is "Mr. Bo Duke" a codeword for something?

Sometimes, OPD will use that talkgroup, or other similarly vague ones, for their training exercises. If you listened for a while, you probably would have heard the exact same call dispatched twelve or thirteen times.

Some of the names get creative...

Howdy, OmahaScanner!

Yes - during my listening session, I heard the EXACT same call given out six (6) times, which matches what you're talking about!

...Now I'm wondering if 611-620 are either Training TGs, "event" TGs, or multi use TGs...I see 615 and 616 being used right now (I'm listening to Sarpy and a fire at the Dump or thereabouts right now but watching ORION with UniTrunker)...The Orion system seems to be fairly orderly with their TGs, look at the fire tgs, the Washington County tgs, etc...PD/SO tgs aren't quite so orderly, but I wonder if that block from 611-620 aren't all used for the same thing...if that's the case, 617 being a training tg would make loads of sense...
