    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:

Does anyone have a list of the unit numbering scheme for the Downriver Mutual Aid System?

What I have found so far:
Most dispatchers are Unit ID 1
All PD units are in the first 00 to 99 range and all fire units are in the 300 to 399 range...
Riverview - 41000
Southgate - 44000
Taylor - 46000
Brownstown - 34000
Trenton - 45000
Flat Rock - 36000
Rockwood - 43000
Grosse Isle - 38000
Wyandotte - 47000
River Rouge - 42000
Ecorse - 35000

Any others would be appreciated. I'm entering them into my SDS100 so I can figure out what units are responding on the common dispatch channels.

Also, I have caught occasionally units in the 100-199 range and I *think* they may be higher PD brass or possibly detectives. Not sure.

Also, the range of 300-399 is not just fire but EMS units as well.

I do not monitor DPW so no idea what those may be.

I'm only in the area on vacation a couple times a year so I don't get to monitor it much. Any additions or corrections would be greatly appreciated.
