• 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:

May be moving to the Stoughton area sometime within the next year or two. Wondering what is the best site for Stoughton and what all can be heard, I know DCSO patches in there channel 1 through WISCOM right. I now have a Whistler TRX-1
Best bet would be Deerfield, the Madison sites as well as Milton should be easily within range as well, amongst others. Primarily WSP comms as well as the STAC and RTAC channels occasionally. DCSO dispatch is patched through maybe 50% of the time, I imagine it's active only when a trooper switches to the channel. On the Madison sites you will here some special events (notably UW athletics) DOC, Mendota Mental Health, an occasional Capitol Police patch and several EMS crews as the come two and from the hospitals in the area however radio traffic here is light just like it is in most other parts of the state, most of the action is on DaneCom. The Madison P25 system should also be within reach on which DCSO is patched 100% of the time.

Seeing a site #130 show up as a neighboring site to Baraboo with a control channel 172.6125 shown. Not seeing this in the database and its too far away for me to listen too. Any info on this one?

I have noticed a microwave link and tons of new verticals on the DNR tower on Maple Dr. in Portage Co

I hope there is a new system or upgrade in place that's not five years out. I was very excited to see the RFP last year with 95% portable coverage (among other amazing features) and heart broken it got axed. This does not bode well for a replacement or upgrade.

Obviously somewhat a stretch, but Dane County's DANECOM has a SysID of '130'. Can someone in Dane County listen to 172.6125 just to make sure there wasn't a new frequency added to DANECOM and/or a WISCOM site affiliated with Dane County?

I'm in Dane County and already checked, I haven't heard anything on it. Also doesn't show up as a neighboring site to any of the Dane County WISCOM towers. My guess after reading this is that it may be the Plover site coming online : https://dma.wi.gov/DMA/divisions/oec/library/2019/20190529WISCOM_Subcommittee_Meeting_Minutes.pdf
