    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:

The RR database lists TG 1917 and 1918 as AirLife Greeley and AirLife Greeley Run 1 respectively, but there is an obvious lack of radio traffic on thoese TGs.

Being in Ft Collins, I witness the chopper landing at Poudre Valley Hospital fairly regularly.

Are they being dispatched and communicating with NCMC on analog channels only?
Have they not acquired DTRS radios due to budget restraints?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks and 73,

As far as I've heard, they do all their chopper operations on VHF still. I have heard the flight medics/nurses talking on the Weld EMS DTRS TG, so I think they have DTRS packsets they can use.

They are dispatched on 153.785.

Some med reports from the ship to NCMC on DTRS now but otherwise Med-3 and VHF.

I have hear surveillance airplanes complain that DTRS unable to understand over engine noise so use VHF or UHF to relay to the ground surveillance.
