    Florence County Wisconsin

    The talk group is 19001 for sheriff. To hear them, you will need to monitor a wiscom site within the county or possibly a site from a neighboring County like Marinette. Their fire/ems is still on vhf.

    WS1040: Any recommendations for a portable antenna with better VHF and UHF reception range than the WS1040's stock antenna?

    I would recommend the Diamond RH 77A for your vhf and uhf needs. Give this antenna a try and see if it meets your reception needs before going outdoors. I agree, try not to use the attenuator on the global settings, only use it on a specific frequency if needed. I've only used the attenuator on...

    WS1040: Any recommendations for a portable antenna with better VHF and UHF reception range than the WS1040's stock antenna?

    Just a word of caution depending on your location. The 1040 is a very sensitive scanner which means that if you live in an urban area or close to a tower (cell, repeaters, etc.) you will get alot of noise and overload which will wipe out signals. If you are in a rural area with an outdoor...

    Delta county area, city of Escanaba

    It's true that 154.755 has been used all these years. One thing that I can verify while spending many months up there through the years is a inconsistency with the transmitter power on that frequency. With using an external high gain vhf antenna approximately 35 miles away, there were times...

    Delta county area, city of Escanaba

    Not sure if this helps, but when I was up there at the end of October, they were still on vhf. Their unit numbers vary, but are always 2 digit numbers.

    FDSO simulcast

    I monitored a similar scenario when I was located in DeKalb Co. Ill. The primary dispatch channel for sheriff on 154.86 and municipal dispatch (Sycamore, Genoa) on 155.64 suddenly were being simulcasted on both frequencies. Eventually the county implemented a new p25 700mhz trunking system. The...

    Wow, so they abandoned their Nexedge system. Too bad they remain encrypted.

    OASIS unknown talkgroups

    I have seen these as well. My thoughts that they may be Milwaukee Co. Sheriff Dept. as their talk groups start at 1401.

Is...

    Greetings. I am having issues with charging NiMH rechargeable batteries with my 1040 with the supplied power supply. Anytime that I charge brand new batteries, I can only get about 30 minutes or less of usage before the batteries needs to be charged again. I have tried 3 different packages of...

    WISCOM Thread (all posts regarding WISCOM go here)

    I've been hearing this TG also from the Milwaukee VHF site as well since earlier this year; I could never figure out what this is either. Last week I heard comms talking about being in the area of Easter Iowa in McGregor and Holy Cross which is right across the river from us. Being familiar...
