WHAT SCANNER APP DO WE USE? IT'S FREE! DOWNLOAD LINKS BELOW
(Joplin News First) — Scanner traffic is limited compared to when we were kids. In the mid 2000s the FCC required the transition to HD (High Definition). And this made the scanners of the past obsolete.
Example is old TV’s had to have the digital tuner box to allow them to pick up channels. However there was not a digital tuner box for scanners.
New technology allows some departments to encode (or scramble) their communications. However with the internet, identity thefts, etc? These channels must share personal information, so keeping it private is appropriate.
Instead of griping about it we have built our own network, through word-of-mouth, #JLNtipsters. People see something they message us!
DOWNLOAD THE SCANNER DELUXE - FREE - you will hear some radio communication, but not all.
Then choose Jasper County/Highway Patrol Troop D.
CLICK the ⭐️ to mark it as a favorite. Do a radius scan and there might be other channels you like! Newton Co/Neosho is NEW.
Keep in mind this is only EMS and FIRE and MO Highway Patrol. The Joplin Police Department broadcast ENCODED HD and are not available to the public or the media. That’s why we need your tips when you see JPD SWAT or Joplin Police responding to an event.
