• 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:

If I remember, Harrisburg units are assigned to Troop K and are designated K-1, etc. How are cars from their administration headquarters designated? Year's ago, I would hear "Headquarters 300" (example). I don't reside close enough to Harrisburg to monitor any transmissions from "Headquarters." They do travel throughout the Commonwealth, however.

They are using the dispatch center location now. "Harrisburg CDC to such and such." "Norristown CDC to blah, blah, blah."
Units are usually designated by there location and a number. Harrisburg 3, Skippack 2, etc.

Troop K is Media, Philly, and Skippack.

Troop H covers the Dauphin County area.

As far as Harrisburg HQ radio callsigns, no clue.

Last info I have in my files shows:

H1-1 Troop H CO
H1-2 Troop H Patrol Cmdr.
H1-3 Troop H CID Cmdr.
H1-4 Troop H Staff Cmdr.

For Exec Staff they use HQ-1 -> HQ-999

I guess nothing much has changed. HQ-810 use to be heard in this area frequently. How does the MDC1200 distinguish between (example) H1-28 and HQ-28 at the CDC??????
