Does anyone know the RISCON talkgroup that the Marine Taskforce operates on? Looking at the database, the only entry that mentions "marine" is 1025 "Inland Marine IO".

I think I found it on snewiki.com. It looks like Marine Task Force 1 uses talkgroup ID 6 and Marine Task Force 2 uses ID 7. Should the Radio Reference database be updated to note that? I have no clue how to request an update.

Yes used by the Marine Task Forces, but are labeled "Alpha Tag" as Wide Area 5 and Wide Area 6
and are listed under Statewide Area/Events Talkgroups

As to changes, all input is from actual users who make a RRDB submission

You’re correct, Wide Area 5, TG 6 is used by the marine task force, Wide Area 6, TG 7 is for secondary marine incidents.

TG 6 has been renamed Marine Task Force 1
TG 7 has been renamed marine Task Force 2

The Wide Area names for all but Wide Area 7 & 8 have been updated over the past year or so.
