• 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:

Just curious has anyone actually heard a WCSO unit talk and make requests on the Service Net/City Net channel that city departments usually use during evening times? I know thats what WCSO 2 is for but someone on twitter who listens to them all the time as well thinks they hear them making requests on that channel as well. Just curious for anyone who lives in the area and monitors as well...

Sometimes Service Net gets so backed up, units will go back to their primary net and ask for a check there instead. I'm sure WCSO 2 gets pretty busy, so it wouldn't surprise me, but I can't honestly recall hearing a county unit on there. Service Net is open between 4PM and Midnight.

Also, CityNet is from 2AM to 6AM, combining South Cities (Tigard, Tualatin, Sherwood, and King City) with Hillsboro. It's been a while since I last listened, but I believe Beaverton stays on their own net, and WCSO 1 stays the same (Sheriff, Cornelius, Forest Grove, and North Plains PD).

You may or may not have known this already. :)

U are full of info! I did however know all the city net/ service net switch overs.. But I'm with you, they may use service net when WCSO 2 gets backed up but I've never heard them either.. Guess I'll just have to listen more to service net

Since it's all coming out of WCCCA anyway, I don't think an SO unit occasionally popping onto the Service net would generate any headaches.

Ya instead of switching to channel 3 (service net) they have just been patching the two nets together to create a "city net"
