• 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:

About a month ago or so, I was listening to Selfridge Tower and there was a KC-135R flying in the pattern. I heard the following:

Tower: "Piston 52 Heavy, cleared for the option, runway 19."

Tanker: "Cleared for the option, runway 19, Northwest... Piston 52 Heavy"

Tower: "Thought you were flying a different plane tonight huh?"

Tanker: "Yeah, sorry about that."

Haha thats good

On one boring afternoon I heard SANG Tower get into a conversation with a private pilot about the housing market in California among other off-topic things.

*Random question: what kind of scanner do you have?

My brother lives in Pennsylvania and he told me a while back he heard the local fire department being dispatched to a location for an elderly lady with rectal bleeding. Can you imagine the look on the firefighters faces when they recieved that call?!

I'm sure the look was that of any medical emergency.

As hard as it is to believe rectal bleeds seem to be a common situation at least here in Michigan. Now for funny dispatches here are a few I have heard.

unit xxx respond to a woman down on Karen ave .....

unit xxx respond to a man down on dick street .........

unit xxx respond to a woman w/ an object stuck at xxxxx (later learned what the rest of the story was....

unit xxx respond to xxxxx (a local alternative lifestyle bar), per fire enter in rear......

These are just a few in my 5 yrs of dispatching I have heard or had to dispatch

Listened to a call of ear bitten off by horse. Then the MR ED stuff started......
A horse
of course a horse

Disturbing but kind of funny was the call of a 90 something man on death bed having family, medical, and clergy in room for his last few minutes. The call was to have the individual ,who was masterbating over the 90 year old guy, removed from there.
Dispatch .... Did you copy?
Unit.... Yes but am speechless I mean Wow.

When I worked at a mall I called 911 when me and my partner came upon a van at the end of the lot at 1000 at night. When we approached and knocked on the window I heard someone scream bloody murder inside.

I found out that when we knocked the female got scared and bit down completely biting his head clean off.


Dispatch put it out this was.


Respond to a Medical at the mall...... Meet with Public Safety Reference a decapation to a penis........:lol:
