    LASD Dispatch 1 Altadena

    I've been monitoring LA Co Sheriff Dispatch 1 Altadena / Crescenta and I've heard 0 radio traffic including L-Tac 8 which is shared with Santa Clarita, anyone else notice or am I now in a dead zone ? I haven't been listening much, but I suspect they might be on C-Tac ?

    Need advice from the group...

    I'm new to the scanning world. I'm a HAM and am looking into purchasing a digital trunking scanner. However I'm reading on this forum that there is increasingly less to listen to due to the shift to encrypted communication. Is it still worth it?

    Los Angeles (South Bay) Feed Survey

    Since this feed has gotten so busy, I'm thinking about deleting Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach Police and Fire from the lineup as it's already being carried by another feed provider. Here's the dilemma: On one hand, it's nice to have all the South Bay cities centralized in one feed and not...

    The Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System is supposed to link all of L.A. County's first responders. But its status is uncertain. Blame sloppiness, recriminations and politics. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-newton-column-20110611,0,2121450.columnL
