    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:

I noticed that they have back up talk groups now listed on MARCS. Are they the same agency as CMH police and fire that primarily operate off the FCCA system? Or are they a different agency entirely and if so what are their primary operating frequencies?

Airport authority primary is on the FCCA system. I don't personally know if they have upgraded radios yet for MARCS. I do have knowledge some departments on FCCA are buying radios that will work on MARCS, including the city of Columbus has installed radios in the new rescues, hazmat that are capable of being used anywhere in the united states ( HSA) monies were used to purchase those vehicles and they are subject to being used nationwide if needed by the federal govt.
