• 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:

Most likely not, MPSCS does not allow any for profit on their system.
Seamusg....this is not entirley true.........Monroe County Med Control is on the MPSCS system so it is possible...though they probably dont want a lot of it....

There has been a rumor for some time that they want to do away with the MedCom system in Macomb County. As of right now, Mount Clemens Regional (general) is where all the calls come into, and get passed to the respective hospitals. Mount Clemens Regional has footed the majority of the costs associated with operation as well.

The last I heard, the MedCom system WILL be going to the Macomb County sub-system... but of course, no official date was given.

This is something that has been talked about... and talked about... lets see if it happens this time. IF this does happen, it will be a MAJOR tech improvement over what is currently in place!!!

How happy are the EMS providers about having to go to the State system since you still have to have the VHF radio for 155.340? Not only do you have to buy a new radio to use the system, isn't the State going to charge an annual fee for the system access.

When Detroit swithed over to their system some brainchild removed all the VHF radios from EMS. They have now bought all new VHF to reinstall so they meet MEDCOM requirememnts.

I believe that about all the ambulance services in the Western U P are on MPSCS. Houghton and Keweenaw Counties are covered by Mercy Ambulance and it is owned by Marquette General Hospital. Mercy uses several tg.
In fact I believe that the local 911 phone tax paid for all the 800 radios for the ambulance service before it was sold to MGH.

If you mean Tower 210 by t020u (do you mean T020a), most likely not, from what I heard today site 210 will stay in place enen if it goes offline.

The Mount Clemens tower 210 will stay online in addition to the 9 new towers that make up the macomb county subsystem tower 299.

Reason being, there will be users that need to access the MPSCS system that will not be allowed to access the subsystem towers due to "bandwidth considerations".

The control channels have not been released or discovered yet. If the switch over is due as soon as stated, the CC freqs will be online soon. I've tried to find out via my contacts at radio repair with no luck. They arent positive what of the 17 freqs will be used yet.

Its coming off the Richmond Tower......... Least thats where i'm getting them from
That's not the new Macomb Simulcat . That's the current MPSCS system. Their radios will work on any MPSCS site, so their only using new radios, not the new system.
