• 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:

Just heard Groton Fire Alarm testing the "building alert system" on 155.925. It definetly sounded like a repeater because there was a bit of a hang time at the end of the transmission. The only license I see in the area is North Stonington EMS.

Better late than never... :)

North Stonington Ambulance has 3 tones:
- "All Call" to alert all personnel, only used when a crew is needed
- "R-1" tone that alerts the first responders on calls requiring an R-1 response per EMD
- "Building Alert", alerts the paid staff in-house

The "All Call" is tested once a week and the "Building Alert" is tested daily at 0830, and yes it is a repeater on Wyassup Hill. The North Stonington Fire Department has put up a new tower across the street from the NSAA tower and it should be online any time now.
