Gymbag said:I would like to know who the police officer is telling a tow truck driver to move my vehicle off the roadway? If I want a certain tow compay to remove my vehicle off the roadway I'm sure as hell aren't paying two different tow companies. If the police advise a tow company to remove my vehicle off the roadway then that police service better be willing to pay the tow slip.
The TG list has pretty impressive, but how old is it?Mike_Oxlong said:You have a scanner and you have a set of ears.
Listen to the talkgroups and determine if the traffic matches the business.
You yourself said the list was outdated. Might as well verify things and make sure the database is as accurate as we can get it.
I'm heard the exact same call as you did !!! He didn't need a tow, just someone to get into the vehicle. JP is a contract tow, so I guess they are the very first to get the call.slipslope said:between the two lists, all the talkgroups listed are active. there's probably a few more, but not that I heard.
yesterday I heard on the radio where the police found a car that was idling with the keys locked inside. they ended up getting JP towing to retrieve the keys and the officer sent the keys over to 14 division station to be held for the owner. JP came and got the keys out of the car and didn't charge. I don't think a ticket was issued either.
I was surprised to hear this, and was impressed by the effort put in by the police and JP towing. I hope the owner understands all that effort.
It's not as uncommon as you may think for a driver to help out a situation without $$ involved. Blocking lanes for safety etc....slipslope said:I was surprised to hear this, and was impressed by the effort put in by the police and JP towing. I hope the owner understands all that effort.
Any suggestions on what software will work?ve3nsv said:200 bucks? You can decode them for free routing your scanner audio through your computer using one of the many speech inversion programs out there.
(So I have heard anyways)
