I have a “police scanner” but can no longer hear you. Why?

In fall 2019, the Streetsboro Fire Department moved all radio communications to the Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications System, better known as MARCS. This is a secure digital radio system that prevents unauthorized use of our assigned radio talk group. It also eliminates radio connectivity and interference problems we commonly experienced. If you purchase a 700/800 mHz (megahertz) trunking scanner, you will have the ability to have many different listen only talk groups after programming. Since these newer scanners can become very costly, you may also want to consider using one of several online radio scanners, many of which are free to use.‚Äč
