• 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:

I can tell you Trooper 5 based in Cumberland is called by the 911 center on the telephone at the hanger. No radio traffic until the chopper is wheeled out of the hanger and preping for takeoff.

Syscom also speaks to them by phone when they are dispatched.

MSP Helicopter Dispatching

Local Jurisdiction receives call from IC for Helo, Local Jurisdiction calls SYSCOM/EMRC and requests helo, MSP Duty Officer at SYSCOM selects the closest Helo and then calls that Helo by phone at the Hangar unless they are already in flight then they use the 44.74mhz frequency and tells them where to respond, by giving them the closest Interecting streets, ADC Map Coordinates as well as GPS Coordinates.

To answer your question there is no paging or alerting system over any frequency for MSP Helo's.
