All new registrations are going to be thoroughly vetted prior to being approved by the administration team. Thank you for your immediate un...

Re: link to Portland

This was a great idea, thanks! It was overly confusing.

Now each portal page has a list of the municipal pages being used in each state, except for Vermont, where there are none.

Maine as I understand it could have a couple more down the road too.

Re: link to Portland

The only way I can find my way into Portland's page is by searching on the site, is that by design? There's no way for a user to drill down from the landing page? (Sorry, I just found a link to it in a comment on the Cumberland Co Fire page - where it's linked in via the VHF simulcast frequency) As...

Rioting/protest monitoring information

It has long been the belief that this site, Scan New England, is a public safety friendly site. Disclosing information on communications of public safety officials and their radio use are not helping matters, and frankly putting public safety official's lives in danger. So with this post, no posts a...
