    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:

South Berwick and Berwick to be dispatched by kittery. I saw 2 new antennas at my local tower, and sent out a text and found out they are 2 new gig relays for kittery to receive on..all pd and fire repeater are tied into the South Berwick channels- linked.. It gets deeper.. South Berwick of units are no longer units 1--19... They took on the 200 id.. So, Berwick is still the 100, and South Berwick is the 200..... Remember, I said -- all channels are still active.. But now you hear Berwick on 3 channels currently...

Well at 1500 hrs this date South Berwick Dispatch signed off for the last time. I was a Dispatcher there in 1979. My very first job after graduating High School and it was a learning experience for me. Sad to see it's gone now. :(

I had my uniden on fire time out - set for a4 and sb fire. I was laying down when the times went off. Made me jump.. I heard the sign off. I been scanning them since 2005. I remember the old tone test every night when Morse code would go out and then the tones, then announcement.. That rescue tone in 2005 was low.. I watched the SUV come into the foce, used by chief, then given to the school cop, the the lt got it before it retired.. I seen unit 16 use it on the weekends when it was available.. Old times.. The station is being rebuilt right now at rte 236 and farmgate drive.. Former member of southern Maine fire notification member 101 used to sit across from the pd , scan for fires, eat dunkin donuts and watch the boys come and go.. They never bugged us.. His uniden 15X is right here .. And did you notice that Sanford puts out the tone twice?? And for the first time ever - today, I heard a4 pages twice.. Signal wise -- all the working repeater freqs come in scratchy via mag mount on ogunquit rd.. I can hear the uhf not bad, in hannaford in dover... Vhf was bad.. Rip independent small town dispatch...
