• 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:

Is TG-21344 used as VECC Response 5 and not VECC response 1??? I heard alot of traffic on this channel yesterday during the super cell storms we had. After things calmed down a little, they said that it had slowed down enough to close that channel and had all remaining units on there switch to resp. 4

21344 is Fire Ch 5. It is primarily used as an overflow TG when Fire 2, 3 and 4 become very busy. This is also true of Fire 6 thru 11 which are used in large fires such as Wasatch Jr when it burned last year.

I think the confusion came during a TG realignment a year or three ago.
