• 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:

Its taken a lot of my time the last few days to finally get this together.

Just let me know of any mistakes or things that need to be changed, updated or combined.

Again, I know little about Chicago and I'm doing most of this from looking at a state map and using wikipedia.org to gather municipality info.

Also, eventually, with all the consolidated dispatch centers, they may need to be moved into one of the 'burb pages. Also, there may be issues with the dispatch centers that they cover 2 areas.

The pages will also include Hospitals & Schools for each municipality and eventually businesses (that are not considered "countywide").

Feel free to sumbit information as needed. CARMA info is welcomed (and its ok to submit it)

I still like the new set up, but, trying to use it with ARC software to create multiple systems in one pass is impossible. The system name is Northern-2 and the sub-categories, i.e., local government become the group and it will roll all municipalites labeled as such into one group.

The work-a-round I saw and used was to do one system at a time, rename the system name and then the group name. Currently all alpha tags have to be re-done anyway.

All this is new and it will get better.

Thanks for the work you do,

Jim

OK.... know nothing about ARC so can't help there.

I updated the Southern 'Burbs completely last night.

Others will come in the next week (hopefully) while I am on vacation.

Again, must get comments and suggestions to be headed in the right direction for all

:)
