All,

I am sure some of you have noticed some changes being made in the Indiana database and I wanted to post a short note to fill you all in on what's up.

Yesterday, I updated all the SAFE-T sites. I updated all FCC licenses that were expired to current ones, and also added GPS location data to all the sites, as none of them had it. This should have been done long ago and I apologize for us not having this info in a lot sooner.

Today, and likely into tomorrow depending on time, I am moving all Skywarn/RACES frequencies to their respective County page, rather then them all being on one State page, as they are now. I am going to leave the State category there for regional and Statewide frequencies.

Next up after that I will be adding default GPS location data to all the Counties themselves.

All of this is being done to have the Indiana DB comply and fall more in-line with the DB guidelines set forth by our lead Admin.

If anyone has any questions or comments, feel free to post them here :cool:

Thanks!

As always Thanks for all you do and continue to do. This site has become an Awesome site for information. I hope that people continue to submit info, and this site will continue to get better and better.

I totally agree. This site would be nothing without all of us submitting to the DB. I encourage anyone who sees something missing or wrong to let us know. All submissions are 100% anonymous and no one would ever be revealed as a submitter unless they chose to do so themselves.

as of now Firefighter, NO according to Trunk88...they haven't been added to the Tower yet, also I'm not sure but have been told that the Terre Haute EDACS Tower will be converted over to SAFE-T for Terre Haute City Police to use as its Primary Tower for Safe-T

Also guys, All Statewide frequencies, ie: Point/ILEEN etc.. will be removed from each Counties page and will continue to be listed on the Common Statewide Frequencies page. Per the guidelines, frequencies used Statewide are not to appear on each of the 92 Counties pages, but rather appear one time on the Statewide page.

Yes, that should have been done ages ago and I apologize for that. I see the name change didn't take long :)

I want to clarify the above. If an agency uses one of the Statewide frequencies on a regular basis for dispatch or C2C, ie: Plan A, with their own PL, it will remain on the county page.

SAFE-T talkgroup categories for INDOT, DNR, and ISDH have notes added as to which districts go with which counties - should make it easier for users to select/choose/program specific talkgroups for their local area.

Cool, thanks Chris..

I think it's all done now. We should now be in compliance with the DB guidelines set forth. If anyone sees anything out of whack, please let us know :)

OK, next up, I am going to start to add the GPS data to the individual trunked systems in the DB. I am going to start with the bigger ones used in the few counties not on SAFE-T, and then work my way down from there :)

Scannerfreak,
FYI, Mt Vernon Schools, the three at SR234 & 200N the high school, intermediate school and elementary school are all now in the town of Fortville with last years boundary change. All police protection is now Fortville PD as primary SO and McCordsville secondary. McCordsville has McCordsville Elementary and the HCSD has Mt Comfort Elementary.
