Covers mostly all Johnson County PD & FD dispatch channels. This feed uses an audio queuing system. Audio will become delayed due to the queuing system - but no missed audio will be the result. Per-talkgroup audio is available by clicking the info button.

This audio feed will not broadcast talk groups such as JoCo Commons, RegComs, City Wides, Public Works, KDOT, or non-dispatch talk groups. I cannot monitor or scan JoCo ECC Fireground talk groups (ECC Tac 4 to Tac 9). They encrypted it in 2013, and it appears it was solely encrypted to keep the media (TV/News) out.
Why is this stream so quiet... where's the humming and noise?
I don't like white noise. I don't like listening to a grounding hum issue all day.
The scanner is very much so scanning, but not with background sounds.
The alpha tags are showing up a few seconds after or inconsistently during the voice transmission.
This is simply due to the application in use sending the metadata in a delayed state to the Broadcastify servers causing further delay. Generally, meta/alpha tags are sent as the transmission activates.
The audio is really distorted!! What gives?
That happens from time to time with P25 systems. As far as I am aware, this is due to a bad decode on the scanner or an antenna on the P25 system having issues, causing the scanner to lose a lock on the talk group.
Sometimes it will auto-correct, other times - it will be like that until the transmission concludes.
All dispatches utilize a tone/beep before activating voice for any priority/urgent calls. All configured talk groups listed above can utilize the following tones...
Short low-pitch tone: Channel Marker, used when air is held. Happens every 10 seconds if active - in queued audio, it will play rather rapidly.
Long high-pitch tone: Attention call/page out.
Fast High tone beep x3 or x5: ECC Fire Call or non-breather.
Hi-Lo / Warble: Assist the officer (Police), Evacuate Building (Fire).
If the stream is silent for more than 15 minutes at any given time and only shows "Scanning...", please do let me know. It's possible a frequency changed on the JoCo system, or the scanner needs to be hit with a hammer a few more times. :^)
