This feed will be ending on September 23, 2011 due to moving from the Fayette County area.
This scanner system is currently a Uniden BearCat 396T with stock antenna until my discone antenna can be installed.
This feed provides the following frequencies from Fayette County, WV:
-Police Dispatch, which is also their talkaround.
-Police Tactical, which is a unit-to-unit transmission, so nearby transmissions will be heard.
-Fire Dispatch, also a talkaround. During mutual aid calls and other events, Tactical lines 1 and 2 are used. The tactical lines are not picked up and broadcasted by the county towers, so radio range is limited. Any activity from the tactical lines would be within 5 miles range of the scanner.
-EMS Dispatch. There are two medical transport companies in the county, Jan-Care and General Ambulance. Both companies have their own frequencies that they communicate with, but the dispatches come from County Dispatch, so I keep it on those primary frequencies.
The Motorola radios in this county have a "Direct" feature which allows the users to transmit and receive traffic on the same frequency as their dispatch/talkaround, but does not get picked up by the county towers. Any radio can pick up the transmission if close enough to the unit transmitting. This feature is used primarily for close-proximity conversations for incident response. Any unit using this feature will initially call another unit ending with saying, "on direct." This feature ensures that the conversation will not go to county Dispatch.
