Feed Notes

Uniden Bearcat BCD996XT scanner located in Verona, WI.

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.

DaneCom is a simulcast system, which means it's transmitting on the same frequencies from multiple towers at the same time.  They're designed to overlap, so the scanner gets hit by signals from at least two of those towers most of the time.  Scanners don't have the electronic doodad that's necessary to make sense of these overlapping signals.  That's why most of the Dane County scanner feeds have choppy audio.

I managed to figure out how to position my scanner antenna so that the scanner is only really hearing one tower.  It seems to avoid choppy audio most of the time.  It's not perfect, but it's usable.
