    Hello DC Radio Forum, I am new to this site, so please forgive any errors in terminology. I was wondering whether anyone on here recorded any radio traffic from the MPD, US Capitol Police, Parks Police, or any other law enforcement or emergency response agency on January 6th. Many thanks, Milo

    WMATA Transit Police Channel

    Does anyone know what happened to the Transit Police channel(s) that could be found here? They just stopped working for me one day and I tried reprogramming today and still nothing is coming through. Maybe it got encrypted or moved to another system (if so, which system?)
