    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.

the NJSFAC has a convention every year. Last year was the first and last year that he was a guest speaker. We got CEU's for the class. He spoke about how his tv show started EMS in the country and that cities were going to him about how to start one up. Within this, he was basiclly saying that EMS is apart of Fire. Now, here is NJ, that is mostly NOT the case. It upsets EMT's when they are told that. This guy was spoken too and kept it up the whole weekend! Rub it in your face kind of attitude. That's the story.

P.S. His wife is not the nicest person (put mildly)

Looking for the radio they had on the show. I was half tired when I did this. I was wondering what type of Tone they used like cq1 or something else.

Sorry for the mess up.

The tones used on Emergency were old "Quik-Call" version 1 type alerting. It is outdated and you'd be hard pressed to find any of it. A search for 'quik call encoder' on eBay yielded zero results.

I recall there used to be a thread in one of the radio sites' forums where we figured out exactly what tones they were. I can't find that any more with the quick search I did.

Most radios these days won't decode old QC1 tones, as far as I know. it's actually 0.75 sec of two tones overlaid on one another, a pause, then another 0.75 sec of a different pair of tones. So you have four tones to figure out.
