• 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:

I was listening to the scanner yesterday when the explosion occurred in Oconomowoc and does WCC just have Oconomowoc dispatch center programed, I herd WCC talking to Oconomowoc dispatch center several times. It was very difficult to follow everything because it seemed everyone was using there tac channels and then the command channels. I know in the City of Waukesha where i am a reserve officer our dispatch center always calls WCC over the land line which doesn't make a lot of sense. You would think they could talk to each other over the radio to relay information. Just wondering what others think?

I notice that a lot for fire mutual aid incidents,everyone on scene should be on whatever Com channel dispatch told them to switch over too,but a lot of firefighters are yacking on their Tac channels too much,and sometimes don't even hear command or firefighters from their own department calling them on the Com channel.

yet another reason I find Waukesha Co. one of the most irritating to listen to on a scanner. Think I liked it better when they were on VHF with less choices.. :D
