Feed Notes

DaneCom trunked law enforcement talkgroups:  DA LAW 1 and DA LAW 3.

Dispatch is usually on DA LAW 1, but moves to DA LAW 3 when quick-hitting incidents happen.

WHY IS THIS FEED NOT ALWAYS RELIABLE?   Read on...

DaneCom is a simulcast system, which means it's transmitting on the same frequencies from multiple towers at the same time.  Scanners don't have the electronic doodad that's necessary to make sense of these overlapping signals.  

With some creative antenna positioning, my scanner picks things up pretty well MOST OF THE TIME.  Not always.  In particular, when DaneCom switches to certain control channels, my scanner has a real tough time locking on to it.  That's just how it goes.

I only put this feed back on the air because I didn't see anyone else providing a DCSO feed.  "Most of the time" is better than "not at all."  If someone else wants to put the money in to setting up a reliable receive (it can be done for about $850), I'll take this feed down and we'll all enjoy the newcomer's contribution to the community.  Until then, we've got what we've got.
