• 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:

Courtesy of ScanElPaso County:

It's estimated at 50-100 acres now.

168.7250 Pike National Forest "Waldo Canyon IC"
163.7125 Logistics-National Common use
154.4300 Cascade Green Mountain Falls FPD
155.1000 Manitou Springs FD/Crystal Park FD

4940 El Paso County Blue Command - C2 (Pyramid IC)
4942 El Paso County Ruby Command - C4
4540 El Paso County DOT - Pikes Peak Highway Channel-1
4693 Colorado Springs Utilities - WRD
4536 Colorado Springs Parks & Recreation Channel-13

Not hearing anything yet on 464.2750 146.2 Security, KNCQ356 Cedar Hts Community Association, but they are evacuating. Eagle Lake may be evacuated soon.

US Forestry requested State Patrol close one lane of U.S. 24 westbound. Nothing mentioned for eastbound yet.

It's difficult to keep up with all the campgrounds and roads being evacuated and closed.

Rampart Range road is closed at the Woodland Park access point and the Garden of the Gods access point. Fire has spotted below the canyon. Structure protection teams from CSFD headed to Cedar Heights.
