• 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:

For those of you who scan CPD -- that's CHICAGO PD for any of you Southerners:) -- which districts are those where the action really takes place? I just want to scan 2-3 zones at a time so i hear most of the traffic.... Any opinions on the busiest, most worth listening to? Thanks.

Well, I hate to say this, but it all depends on what "action" you want. Every Zone in the city contains your various calls.: shootings, robberies, disturbances etc....where are you located so maybe we can direct you to some "local action"..?

Nawww, it's not shot. The citizens have been trained that the Police will solve all of your problems. Listen to all the " domestic with a 12 year old that refuses to go to school" calls and ask yourself, "if that was me, and I told my Mom i'm not going to school"...lol. I'm more amused by those silly calls then ever. Hate to say, the suburbanites are getting trained as well...

I believe the CPD website has a database that alows you to reveiw crime stats per district. This might give you an idea of the busiest districts and likely types of calls.

It really all depends on what you want to listen to. If you lived in the city, you'd want to obviously keep the Zone on of the District you live in. Zone 10 (Dists. 10/11) is very busy. Zone 12 (Dists. 15/25) not as bad because 25 still encompasses a decent neighborhood. Zone 3 (Dists. 13,14) is quite active but once again, encompases some decent neighborhoods. I live in Zone 6 (Dists. 7/8) and as previously mentioned, the 8th District is one of the largest in the city. Chinatown is actually in the 1st District now Zone 4 (Dists. 1,18) and also encomapsses the loop. It all depends on you and your listening..

So let me see, someone comes on here and asks a question realted to CPD, I reply to it, and in your opinion i'm being sarcastic? 99.9 % was your quote. You've made 13 posts and come up with this? Don't know who you are or maybe do I ? You made some inaccurate statements in your post, and so I corrected...so you feel a little bitter? Districts 11,13,14 are not on the same Zone so someone who's unfamiliar with CPD may be looking for the frequencies for that Zone. I hoped to have cleared it up as i'm very familiar with CPD monitoring. I have received private messages from members who think otherwise and appreciate my input. Sorry you don't always see my comical approach, but hey to each their own. Feel free to post questions or statements and if I can correct erroneous information I will continue to do so...

Hey werin...

Don't let this asshat get under your skin. You've got WAY too much experience to let that happen.

Think about it...everyone's got issues. You have issues; me too.

When you read / listen to some of there cranks, you realize HOW NORMAL YOU REALLY ARE.

Sorta' like the folks who complain about software bugs and demand support.

How much did you pay for your software?

Uhhh. it wuz free.

You should be frigging grateful it wasn't loaded with spyware and virii.

I have never noticed a sarcastic response from you. You've always been a contributor and one of the best resources in Chicago...CARMA.

Don't think that your contributions went unoticed.

In an anonymous forum, very often you see people mentioning the same things they despise in themselves. Perhaps 1975 should chat with a professional about their unhealthy / self-destructive obessions.

Dude, I grew up right near 008. Has it gotten that grim?

On the internet, no one knows you're a Jerk / Dog / Psycho.
