• 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:

While listening to Lifeflight, I heard the dispatcher direct one of the aircraft to Portage county. The target frequency for that region was announced as "Bravo 119". Obviously this is some predetermined designation, but does anyone know what this means?

What are you talking about - "miscommunication"? These codes? Apparently they are well-established.

Yeah... ICS is great however I have seen firechiefs dick it up. So it's great provided you know it.. somedays the fire chiefs and police chiefs have to realize they control tactical units that someone else has control over for the specific emergency... it's amazing how possesive people are over things they do not truley own. (the taxpayers own it all in government but its funny how we forget)
