Occasionally you can hear Chicago PD from Portage. Porter county is still using analog VHF. Portage is on the P25 Safe-T, I believe.

Sheriff is VHF Conventional until the new sites are built, then they and all the rest of County Public Safety will go SAFE-T. City of Portage is on the SAFE-T.

Actually MILF, Portage is not on Safe-T. Police and Fire still use their VHF channels for primary communications. Portage Fire will use Safe-T as a back up if their main freq goes down, but that's it.

You can not hear Chicago FD from Portage, believe me I've tried...lol (I live in Portage). You can pick up some of the Chicago Police Districts along the south side of the city and the lake. No one in Porter County uses Safe-T on a full time basis at this time. Everyone is on the VHF channels that are listed in the DB.
