Metro Ambulance in Mandan will soon no longer use Unit numbers 90,91,92 when the new dispatch equipment at the LEC is complete. They will soon start using there Bismarck unit numbers 6137, 6256, 6139, 6255 etc.
Bisman There is something going on and I can bit you that Mr. Dannenfelzer is up to something I could see him trying to Encrypt that channel. Also be very scared if Mr. Dannenfelzer becomes a big wig at State Radio he will make our whole state 100% encrypted from Police, Fire, EMS, DOT, State parks or just say everything. Lets not forget that it is national security risk to hear on a scanner that the town of Tolna, ND has a grass fire. Also there is a town called Tolna the population is 166Disregard above post, I was wrong. They are still using their main channel for pages. Dispatch radio must have stopped TXing with their PL tone. I turned my radio to CSQ and can now can hear dispatch and the pages. So if you stopped hearing dispatch, turn your PL tones to off/csq. Not sure if its permanent or some radio issue.
BisMan,That position is permanent.
The only way to change things would be to start talking to the city commission. I could maybe see Fire dept changing their ways as far as using encryption if the community starting complaining and making a deal of it and bringing it up to the city commission. BPD though? No way, that will stay encrypted even if its just to prevent a online feed broadcasting their operations 24/7 and rightfully so.
Hey maybe we can get a scanner meet up group going in the area here, just meet up for coffee every so often and talk scanning.
