• 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:

I posted to several regional email lists and wanted to thank all who responded to my query about the talkgroups in use on the Allentown EDACS trunk system.

Here is the list of talkgroups, in EDACS AFS and decimal format, that I put together based upon the public and private email replies I received.

Could anyone tell me what the difference is between the fire and the ems dispatch talkgroups? Is one is exclusively for ems calls (15-155), one for exclusively fire calls (15-157), and maybe the other one is for shared fire and ems responses (15-156)??

I also received a reply that one of the municipal talkgroups is used for 'City Utilities'. Does anyone know if this might be one of the talkgroups I have listed as 'unknown' under the municipal services?

Corrections/edits to this list would be appreciated! - Kel

Wow! Allentown has more "Vice" talkgroups than it does officers assigned to the vice unit.
Thanks for the detailed info.

When the system was set-up additional TGID's were set up but not used that often. Mostly as a secondary channel for that department. MOST city services radios also have City Wide TGID's and or Event channels.

Below is a Almost FULL list of TGID's used by the city with some deletions for obvious reasons;

Does anyone know anything about APD going to digital? I'm seeing digital transmissions on Talkgroup 306 in Unitrunker.
