    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.

You always could hear Detroit, but if you weren't very close to a tower it was choppy. This improves reception...

If there was a DPD unit or someone with a DPD prep in the area that was on a Tg then you will get them...

I found that out from my MSP source..... If you hear a unit in a area of the state you never do then most likely there is a prep or a Mobile on that TG in the immediate area.....

You didn't need a "source" for that - it's simply how the system (and all similar systems) work.

I think he's referring to the Detroit towers being heard.

Not true. DPD talk groups are not allowed on any other tower other than there own (701).

Thats not what one of the MSP and DPD Admin said at the car show I was at Friday when I spoke to them. They said the exact opposite

Well I am a user and I have both talk groups MSP and DPD and the DPD id's are denied on any other tower other than 701. When I switch to the state talk groups the affiliation is allowed.

Who's the DPD admin. that you are talking to, because it sounds like they dont even know how the system is set up. It should be that way at least for the Police talk groups but it isnt. The reason is because the Detroit Id's will over load the towers because there arent as many freq assigned to the other towers.

When Detroit came online with this system they just about doubled the users on the entire system (statewide)

Never trust what you hear from 99% of all MPSCS users.

All users can switch to a STATWD outside of their area and access, but many local talkgroups are strictly kept local.

Statewide groups are true. That wasnt the discussion.

Agreed - if anything that's probably what the people he talked to were referring...

I often pick up out of area TGs in Traverse City. Marquette Co. (a good 5 hour drive from TC) often pops up, as well as other UP counties. A few southern county TGs have also briefly popped up from time to time. I too have been told that if an out of area unit was in my area with a moble/prep that I would hear their traffic while they were nearby. However, I also understand that TGs can affiliate with just one tower, or be county wide, district wide, or statewide. I doubt that Marquette Co. (for example) TGs are statewide, and they are certainly in a different district.

I'm no expert, just thought I'd offer my 2 cents.
