• 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 heard the test loud and clear in Louisville. I didn't look to see whether it was coming in from the Henryville or Floyd's Knobs site.

I heard something similiar to that on Monday morning but I did not catch the TG. I was also hearing Terre Haute Hazmat calling Evansville for several radio checks and that was on 65360 (SW-MA-CALL) I have never heard either before. This was monitored off of the Franklin County (Sunman) Tower.

I heard them saying Harrison County, they are the ones that did the test, with each health dept answering or not as the case. Then they made several call to the State Health officials. I heard all traffic from the Seymour tower as that was the only one I was monitoring when they did it.

Now they are having a flu epidemic meeting Thursday in Scott County, so maybe a pre-planning drill or it's going to become a regular thing like the SEMA tests on 155.0250
I imagine they'll start those SEMA tests on 800Mhz soon as well. I should have stopped the courthouse and asked.

I know this is an old thread, but I am an old man. I am currently listening to ISDH-EPI on talk group 5088 and they are doing a statewide test of all of the District EPI'S? and every Health Department in the state. Kind of interesting that I am hearing all the counties throughout the state.

Safe T system seems to work pretty good for this type of communication.

Didn't know if anyone else had every listened to this.

I am not sure if it happens every Tuesday or what.

Just thought I would share.

Heard the last test loud and clear (including the statewide roll call)--was wondering if this was a weekly test or a general emergency preparedness exercise :3

I did see that indeed :3 (For the record, last week was the first time I'd heard it, in part because I didn't have the PSR-500 earlier and it's the first scanner I've owned to allow me to put the ISDH-EPI groups in with the stuff a bit closer to home that I monitor :3)

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this to monitor it :3

Actually ISDH Radio Tests are done monthly. Some months cover the entire state and other months only cover specific districts. There are 10 ISDH Districts. The tests are done on different TGs each time and either the ISDH EOC or a District Coordinator conducts the tests. The next test will be at 1100 EST (1000CST) on 1-22-08.
