On the Summit County MERCS system, what Akron City and Summit County Services Talkgroups have interesting traffic and may be worth programming into my scan list. There are so many talkgroups on this system that I am forced to eliminate some. With the Police and Fire talkgroups that I have programmed, I have only a little room left for others.

Hi, I don't know how you got yours programmed, but you can start by elminating some of the APD/AFD/Summit SO TG's alot of which go unused or are fairly uninteresting. I'm not an active listener to most of the city services, but from memory, I gave out some of the more active even intersting traffic you might here. I need to reprogram South Summit, so your on your own there. But heres how I got my scanner set up.

In the Summit County Services Talkgroups:

1. What is CSB, they have 2 talkgroups?

2. What is EOC, they have 3?

3. What are the three Fire talkgroups on this list used for?

EOC is Emergency Operations Center

Which three fire talkgroups?

CSB I think might be Children Services Bureau (the people that yell at parents for disiplining their kids)

Fire 1 thru 3 are RARELY used. The only times they use them are TROT training. They were active a week or so ago when everyone was up north for training.
