• 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:

Does anyone know if the medics will be using the three medical talkgroups for the hospitals in Lansing anytime soon?

My guess would have to be, not until the system is up and fully operating. This may take a several weeks, but eventually they will become active. The question is how soon?

Mid-July is still the latest completion date, I don't think they would change over until all medic units in the county are on it.

The Medcomm channels are actually licensed to TCEMCA, and I suspect until such a time that the hospitals only have one radio to use, they'll stay non-edacs UHF.
The EDACS rigs can easily be programmed for the existing medcomm channels, and hospitals arent fond of adding more radios to the mess.
Ingham is the only county of the 3 tri-county agencies using EDACS. The hospitals didnt convert to 800 when Clinton Co did.

They all got talkgroups on MPSCS, but I'm not sure if that led to anything other than throwing a Motorola W7 into the closet of somebody's back office (if even that!)

I think the intent is to have the hospitals on EDACS, but until everyone is on the same page, I wouldnt expect to see a radio in the hospital for it. The ambulances wish to talk to the hospitals, they'll use what the hospitals have..lol
