I've been hearing what I think is an airplane clocking speeders on LEERN. Sometimes they are on the Innercity frequency. I only hear one side (the airplane) of the conversation, but I can't tell where road they are patrolling.


Any ideas?

In this area the Normally use the Post TAC frequency and you hear the trooper if he responds to the plane but usually the troop just calls in his stop like normal if they chase the speeder, if its a flag they may not say anything as they have CADS and can run Leads from their cars, the Dispatcher can see what is on the CADS screen when the system works right. (All part of MARC's data)

Sometimes I hear a plane clocking speeders on LEERN if other agencies are involved.

That would be my guess also.

Supposedly....If doing a mutual aid project single county they are supposed to use the County Mutual aide Freq thats what its for.. Example here in Auglaize it would be S0 06 but then again NOTHING in MARC's is going like its suppose to!

The other agency would have to have MARCS radios in every car to use the mutual aid talkgroup.

I'm here on the west side of Cleveland. A couple of weeks ago, I heard it when I was heading north on 71 out of Ashland towards Cleveland.

It's certainly not on MARCS, it's on LEERN. I'm really not sure what agencies are involved.

Hmmm Does OSP still have low band Radios in their cars in some areas of the state? Or could it have been some sort of patch?

I think they all have direct access to LEERN for interop. Sometimes I hear Post 45 cars talking to their dispatcher on it for whatever reason (dead spots, maybe).

What time today were you hearing this traffic on LEERN. While at work today I was hearing what sounded like an aircraft working traffic on LEERN. I only heard what I believe was the aircraft and they never made a reference to where they were at. I work about 20 miles southeast of Toledo.

The agency I work for got a letter earlier this year that stated OHP would no longer be monitoring LEERN or statewide. I'm not sure if this was just for the post or district in my area or if this is statewide.

I have still heard one of the posts in the area calling on statwide but have not heard any traffic from any of the troops on the road. Maybe they are not installing VHF radios in new cruisers anymore.

Unlikely that it would be statewide as there are still lots of departments out there with no access to MARCS. It's also very possible that this refers only to troopers on patrol, as I know they have been removing LEERN radios from all the cars. Still, OSP has done some stupid things in their time so it's possible that the posts won't be monitoring either.

Interesting ...

I have recently monitored LEERN radio tests in the early morning here in North East Ohio (originating from the Franklin County area). I would imagine that the Post locations would need to maintain LEERN equipment for interop with non-MARCS agencies but that is just a guess on my part.

In the area where I live there is some overlap between the agencies in Medina County and OSP and usually if one agency needs something from the other, they call dispatch and ask them to call the other via telephone to relay the traffic, even if they are responding to or working the same incident.

When OSP aircraft are working with other agencies inside the I-275 beltway in Hamilton County they use ECOMM-8 for traffic speed enforcement.

Saturday, 11/15 they were on route 62 and 44 Just north of Louisville in Stark County. I heard them on VHF LEERN and the TG on MARCS. I have no Idea if it was a patch though but I heard the same traffic on both channels. I had VHF on my BC250D and MARCS on my PSR 500. I heard both plane and mobiles.

Maybe that's why I'm having Aug.co. show up on my Allen co.MARCS scanlist with no wildcards/private calls enabled.
I wonder if the Lima tower is "affiliated " with the Aug.tower ?
Methinks a lot of "dust has to settle " on the MARCS systems.

No dust needs to settle. On MARCS whatever talkgroup a radio is affiliated to will show up on the tower that radio is connected to. It is very common to see talkgroups from neighboring counties show up on any given tower.

On Saturday, I was on my way from eastern Lorain County to Medina at about 9:30am and I heard them on 155.37. They mentioned there was another airborne unit on the same frequency and asked if the ground unit had the capability to move to LEERN. The ground unit must have responded with a no, because they stayed on 155.37. I don't have a digital scanner in the car, but do you think it's just a simucast from MARCS?

I guess they have found one way to defeat radar detectors!!! :)
