How is the lingo for Zone 4 any different from the lingo from the other zones? Basically what I hear for all the zones is:werinshades said:I always enjoy these posts as everyone seems to know what you want to listen to. My advice to visitors to Chicago, which normally is they stay downtown, is to listen to Zone 4 on the Chicago Police. This covers the 1st District which is downtown. Fire-North and EMS-North also covers this area. Unless you are truly familiar with CPD lingo, most of the other stuff makes no sense. Keep it simple I say. Te CPD trunking system is fading away daily, so I wouldn't bother. Of course, if you're into drive-thrus i'm sure someone has that file too...LOL! Enjoy your stay....
The CPD Trunking, City-Wides is what I was referring too. TRU Comapny A-E, SORT Units, Forensic Services , Narcotics Surveillances etc. If you're coming to visit, I don't suspect most are going to sit in a hotel room or walk around the loop listening to their scanners. If they do, I would think since you don't know the cities neighborhoods or districts, you'd be more likely to wonder what Beat 112 or Engine 13 or Amb. 42 would be doing..or at least I would think so (Zone 4, Fire-North, EMS-North).Ch1ronTL34 said:How is the lingo for Zone 4 any different from the lingo from the other zones?
