• 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:

On the Ohio MARCS page it looks like Defiance PD uses talk group 15004, Hicksville PD uses talk group 15012, and Defiance County Sheriff uses talk group 15014.

On the Defiance County page it looks like Defiance County Fire Dispatch is on 154.25 mhz.

Anyone know what the freqs or talkgroups are for Fire and EMS, and SO of Defiance, OH. I am picking up PD only. Thanks!
Defiance County SO and PD are on Ohio MARCS, the rest of Defiance County are still on Conventional Frequencies.

On the link below, scroll down to about the mid-page area ( alphabetically ) for the Defiance County MARCS information.

Ignore the Law Enforcement freqs. on the link below, they are old and outdated.

I cannot confirm these MARCS Talkgroups, but they are my best guess to date.
15003 - Defiance City Fire/EMS Dispatch
15006 - Defiance County SO TAC ?
15008 - Defiance County Fire/EMS Dispatch
15009 - Defiance County Fire/EMS TAC 1?
15010 - Defiance County Fire/EMS TAC 2?
15011 - Defiance County Fire/EMS TAC 3?

What I reported is from scanning in search mode with my 996XT. They are verified active. I just can't verify exact use.. I'm the one that submitted 15004, 15012 and 15014 to Radio Reference. Those were easy to identify because they were transmitting on analog and MARCS at the same time.
