With a good majority of the Chicago PD and most suburbs covered online, is anyone able to stream the Chicago Citywides? Gives a good overall view of what's goin on if we don't want to listen to the zone chatter and not close enough to listen with a normal scanner.

Actually, for the most part, citywide channels are pretty boring. Yeah, every now-and-then, a zone will simulcast a hot call on citywide 1, but it's mostly chatter with CPD transit detail, Lake Shore Dr. Patrol, traffic, and the homeland security checks. Occasionally, when there is a large event going on, citywide 5 or 6 will carry that. Otherwise, the zones are where all the action is!! Zone 6//7/8 are the ones I think have the most action.

yah that's true the Citywides can be boring sometimes but it can also tip you to a hot breaking incident where K9's, HBT, Evidence Techs, Crime Lab, etc might be needed. On hot summer nights where you have multiple incidents going on at once, it's nice to listen to citywide only and to the zones. Then other nights it's just nice to only listen to citywides without all the chatter lol.
