• 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:

In case you missed it this morning, Tualatin Valley F&R posted this video to their YouTube account, complete with radio tones and dispatch traffic.

Flag Ceremony 10th Anniversary 9/11 Attacks TVF&R - YouTube


On a side note, I've heard them use those tones before during a fire scene safety/emergency announcement, but I can never understand what they're called.

An example:

Sounds like "horrible" tones...what's he saying?

They call them Worble tones. On the fire side they are used for mayday or emergency traffic. For police, they sound when a call with a weapon is dispatched and gives an automatic Signal 2.
