• 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:

Radio just got interrupted (Q107.3) during a break. Said there is something major going on in District 7. Dalhousie.

I guess someone found 5 people dead in a house. They are not saying from what, they suspect foul play.

1 survivor - a 1 year old baby.

Ill update if I hear anything. Lets home its not some sick ****... Man I hate this city more and more.

It started out as a welfare check-

This was the most dramatic and horrifying call I have ever heard on the scanner for Calgary. To hear the panic and horror of it all in the voice of the cop, the baby crying as he is talking on his radio, listening to him as he finds body after body. This call will be with me for ever.

I can't imagine how that must have sounded. I only heard it from the other side of the radio, and things were quite mute and sedated by the time we were involved.

Obviously I can't offer anything more than what has been publicized, but I will say that everyone from the responders at scene all the way to the 9-1-1 operators who took the calls and dispatched them have been looked after by the appropriate people.

Quite bluntly it's a numbing feeling seeing a hard-ass police inspector on the TV all choked up as he tries to deliver a statement.

From a good source in Calgary:
the crime scene was horrific, worst they seen in years. 5 first responders were pulled from duty sent to special rehab unit.
