• 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:

Douglas County OEM updating on MAC-2 regarding the Waterton Canyon fire which will become a Type III IMT fire in the AM, also mentioning a possible Type II IMT fire west of Evergreen but have not gotten the size up on that one yet.

It's going to be a >>long<< summer.

Type I is the worst or largest national IMT response.

And they've even changed burn classifications to partial and full thickness, 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th degrees are gone interestly enough.

I live moderately close to the Waterton Canyon and can actually see them doing the drops. Theyve been operating on the following frequencies, most of them are simplex so youd need a good antenna to listen.

168.725 [CSQ] - Pike NF "Direct"
168.725 [123.0] - Pike NF "Devilshead Repeater"
168.125 [CSQ] - "Devilshead Net"
168.050 [CSQ] - Pike Tac 5
123.025 - Helos
126.025 - Air Tactics
168.650 - Air Net/Flight Following
