• 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 noticed VECC Response 1 was in use for a fire up on Kennecott property. I have not heard traffic on this channel since SLC Fire patched to it and Response 6 when they were re-doing their structure.

Its been a really bad a busy week:

Destiny Norton missing then found dead.
1 year old drowns and dies in bathtub
2 Haz-mat spills yesterday, 1 requiring large evacuation area overnight
The large Apt. fire that caused many injuries

Thats the ones I can think of

I agree Hook....that is the first time I have ever heard the VECC fire disps. sending units to channel five just for a response. If we had had another major fire in the valley during that mess, well....<ugh>

You should have seen the fire from less than 100' away.

It burned to 15' of our house - but I didn't witness that part as UPD wouldn't let me back up to help save the neighborhood.
