• 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:

Is there anyone out there that can forward me a listing of all the NCC Fire Tones?

I had one awhile ago but lost it.

Thanks Dave

I also hear a strange tone go off from time to time with no voice before or after it. I am thinking maybe its either a fire siren reset tone?

Any ideas?

You may have set an Alert Tone for the FTO's programmed. There are 10 unique Alerts similar to Cell Phone Ringer Tones and 10 levels of Volume independent of master volume level. Set the Delay to INFINITE so you may hear the call after FTO. To resume FTO Standby, turn scroll knob after FTO.

No this is a dispatch two-tone transmitted by the fire board. I heard it on my scanner. There was no activity anywhere in the county and this two-tone QCII goes off out of the middle of no where and no voice after it. Strange ??
