• 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:

It comes in clear because the tower you are monitoring is just a few miles away... 1040 is D1 North, not Eaton County Dispatch, but I suppose it's possible the dispatch center is talking direct to MSP this way.

I'm picking up Jackson, Battle Creek and other departments in that area but I completely lost everything I used to hear in the 3rd District

Last night, Eaton Central was patched into TG: 1040. I went to bed and never found out why both talkgroups were being patched together. However, at first, I had no idea who I was hearing until I heard them put out a BOL.

It wouldn't be a continuous thing - it just means a trooper normally in this area is up there (either on business or vacation.) I heard a lot of Livingston Co transmissions part of last week while in Gaylord.
