• 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:

I was just in Cheboygan a few weeks ago. The St. Ignace tower comes in just fine from Mackinac.

Mackinac County is on MPSCS. The DNR & State Police talkgroups for that district are also widely used. I would also program in the state park talkgroups, they are under DNR if I remember right.

Who patrols in Mackinac City ? Is it MSP Or County ? I dont see any talk groups listed for Cheboygan County. I'll be sure to put St. Ignace in my scanner but are there any others i need to put in to pick up Macinac City.

MPSCS membership map, as well as the RR database suggest that CCE Dispatch (Cheboygan-Charlevoix-Emmet) is not fully utilizing MPSCS. In fact, CCE appears to be totally stand alone VHF. Check out the standard database.

Cheboygan County Central Dispatch is simulcasted onto MPSCS. You will hear them both there and on VHF.
