• 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:

3 Talkgroups not in the Database are currently up and active on the AACO System - TG 6448, 6480, and 6512, working some sort of event. I've heard units from Annapolis Fire, AACO Fire, Baltimore County Fire.. "Command", "Parking", "Stadium"..

Mention of "Maryland Hall", Bladen Street" "Calvert Street" and "Memorial"

Edit to add - OK the event is the Dedication of the Maryland Fallen FireFighters Memorial in Annapolis.

Does anyone have IDs for these Talkgroups?

From a very old (original) template, I have these as "Disaster" talkgroups ... they been seen active in the past during the Volvo Ocean Race and in conjunction with the county's mobile communications truck MCCU-1 (which kinda makes sense).

6416 22-A DISASTER GENERAL
6448 22-B DISASTER 1
6480 22-C DISASTER 2
6512 22-D DISASTER 3

They are set up today for the dedication of the Maryland Fallen Firefighter's Memorial. There will be a precession down West St in Annapolis to the memorial at Rowe Blvd and Calvert St. The dedication service itself will begin at 3 pm today. Fire apparatus from all around the state will be in attendence.

I heard the same TGs used during the bay bridge walk. There were a lot of discussions related to security concerns about certain ships passing under the bridges during the walk. I just programmed the TG display on my 996 as "SPECIAL EVENTS"

I can confirm that they are calling 6448 Bravo, 6480, Charlie and 6512 Delta.... And 6416 is also in use.

Any idea why this (zone 22) hasn't made the Database before?

There was never any actual traffic monitored on those TG's before; I think a couple of the Trunker guys logged affiliated radios but no one had caught them in use before... also, without significant traffic like today it's hard to pin down what the use really is... half the time, you'll catch UI traffic and have no clue what it is because it's chit-chat or it was three words...
