• 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:

The Nebraska State Fair starts Aug 25 and runs through Labor Day weekend.

Do they run on the Lincoln EDACS system or do they use some conventional freq for like Security / PD at the fair grounds?

Who knows, its Lincoln we are talking about, they will probably bring the substandard radio equpiment :p .....ooo burn....

No in all reality they might use their spare edacs radios that are stored at the football stadium for their extra man power and other agencies that will be there.

In the past Nebraska State Patrol has used a talkgroup on the Lancaster county trunked system. You can expect them on 12-066 (Ch. 25). Medical used their standard dispatch channels as well as their talkaround 14-063 (Med A).

Parking and other Fair operations use several talkgroups on the First Digital 800mhz system.

Volunteer Amateur radio operators will be using one of the local repeaters. I don't recall what repeater was used in the past, but here are a few to try:
146.850
147.045
147.240
147.330

If anyone monitors the Fair this year, I would be interested to know what talkgroups are active on the First Digital 800mhz system.

That is what I was thinking they would do, or if somehow each agency would just do their own things and try and listen to what each other is doing via scanner or a dispatcher.

Thanks for the info Joe and Twister19.

Yup even the FD800 sys in Douglas County has some interesting TGs on there. It is funny to listen to some of them as they must forget people can hear what they're saying.

You would think the hams would use simplex since it's fairly close to one another.
