9:54 am - New club/community website for Minneapolis/Saint Paul MN hams.

luno
I've created a new amateur radio website with a "destination" feel to it. It's got forums, blogs, news feeds, a Wanted/For Sale section, local club listings, and a lot of other user-contributable content (similar to a wiki, but not quite).

If you're a ham from Minnesota or nearby, take a look at http://tcfmc.org

babyty
hi. i just got a scanner today. i'm having lots of fun with it. it's a cobra SR 90016 channel scanner receiver. its old as me. i live over here in new jersey and they are still using analog. i dont know anything about these new fangled scanners. right now i have the police, fire and ems, the local mall cops, and a cemetary. i am trying figure out how to and IF i can get my college's police. the website i use to get number says County College Police may also, but not too often, be found on the Middlesex County EDACS system. " does that mean i can pick it up on my scanner? any help would be appreciated.

oh and i hope its ok to post here, if not i'm sincerly sorry and please delete my post.

10:32 am - MN Metro 800Mhz Trunking - Nowhere Near Completion in Anoka County

luno
According to inside sources, the 800Mhz trunking system implementation isn't going well. I spoke to a police officer who confessed she hasn't even taken her handheld out of the packaging yet, and half the squad cars in the city (no, I won't say which one) aren't equipped with trunking radios yet.

Among the reasons listed for urging our state to invest in a metro-area trunking system were interoperability and increased coordination abilities between agencies. Analog already is interoperable - and with built-in area limitations, channels are available in multiple locations, due to limmited range of handhelds, they can be re-used in other areas, possibly with other DCS or PL tones. When the trunking system comes online, you've got a channel in use across multiple counties - that's it, it's full.

Whose golfing buddy pulled off this deal? Our tax dollars have been spent on a project that provides vendor lock-in and less reliable service. Picture this: you're a seasoned officer called into a domestic in a shady area. Entering the building, you turn the corner and you're fired upon, a narrow miss splintering the doorframe as you duck out of sight - you key your mic and shout for backup, unfortunately your new radio bleeps an "all channels busy" tone at you - neither your partner nor your dispatcher can hear you, as that next bullet comes hurtling toward you...
