• 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:

Looks like Chesterfield Fire has revamped it's talk-groups, moving from 'Fire Dispatch' and 'Rescue Dispatch' to 'North' and 'South'

From what I can gather from monitering them, old 'Rescue Dispatch' is now 'South Branch Dispatch' and old 'Tac-6' is now 'North Branch Dispatch' I don't believe any new Talk Groups have been added, usage and designators just changed.

I can find out, but I believe that this is specifically for the storm-related response. I know that this has been done in the past.

During Gaston and Isabell, Fire Disp and EMS Disp were patched together, calls were dispatched there, and then assigned to be handled on one of four TAC's.

I noticed today that there wasn't much traffic on 154.16. I heard some tones but a voice never followed. Earlier this morning I did hear some voice though.

The 154.160 patch can act unusally sometimes when these special situations occur. If this VHF freq was not being utilitized, it was not part of the overall scheme, rather, just a by-product of the system.
