We are thrilled to share some exciting news with our EnidScanner.com community! During recent severe weather events, we hit a new maximum record of 503 listeners! This milestone demonstrates the growing importance of EnidScanner.com as a reliable source for near-live radio communications during emergencies.

But that’s not all – we’re delighted to announce the addition of Garfield County Emergency Management monitoring to our feed. This enhancement allows our listeners to tune in to vital messages from the weather command center and field reports, providing crucial information during severe storms and emergencies.

The inclusion of Garfield County Emergency Management monitoring is a significant step forward in our mission to keep our community informed and safe. By providing access to real-time updates from official sources, we empower our listeners to make informed decisions during challenging situations.

It’s important to note that due to additional computer processing requirements, Garfield County Emergency Management monitoring will be active exclusively during severe weather events. This feature may become unavailable should internet or power be disrupted at the scanner receive site. However, we are continuously working to minimize any potential downtime and ensure uninterrupted service whenever possible.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to our dedicated listeners for their ongoing support. Your trust in EnidScanner.com motivates us to continually improve and expand our services to better serve our community.

Stay tuned to EnidScanner.com for the latest updates and vital information during severe weather events. Together, we can stay informed, stay safe, and weather any storm.

I noticed on a Facebook post that the last update was from this past summer. I apologize, I have gotten busy and everything seems to be running as smoothly as I can expect so I just haven’t done much updating.

In this update we will cover a few things I have seen happening and cover a few issues I am having, just to keep the transparency.


  • Physical Scanner is silent
    • I have been contacted by a few people about their physical scanner going silent on the Enid Police Department channel (155.520)

      I have noticed this issue also, however, that is maintained by the City of Enid directly and I have no connection to that. I only operate the Online Scanner and the radio does not affect me because I am decoding their digital signal directly.
  • Scanner App goes silent on the Enid Police & Enid Fire
    • Personally, I am baffled at this myself. The EPD and EFD have what is called a “Control Channel” which basically sends a constant signal and when someone keys their microphone and talks, it assigns them a voice channel. My scanner feed listens to this control channel 24/7 and then when it sees something I have told it to listen to, it will automatically tune to the voice channel and monitor that audio.

      However, lately, I have noticed it loses the control channel and goes silent. The Sheriff and OHP still work on the Right channel because they do not use a control.

      I have currently set the scanner computer to reboot at 4am and around 9pm to try and reset everything and keep this control channel running. SO, if you get dropped from the feed around these times, that’s why!


  • Please look through the updates page for best practices on setting up your Scanner app
  • Submit a help ticket on this page if you have problems or notice issues.
    • If you use the submit feedback on the APP, the issue goes to Broadcastify directly, they have to monitor and identify if the issue is on their end or my end. Then they have to contact me, I have to investigate and then correct the issue.
    • Submit issues directly to enidscanner.com and the notice comes directly to me and I can get it corrected much faster!

Hope everyone had a safe Halloween and a great up coming holiday season

It is imperative, that you take time to properly set up your Scanner Radio app for Enid Online Scanner in order to get the best listening experience! When Phase II completes, Enid Police and Enid Fire will be operating on the Right audio channel. Garfield County Sheriff, Lahoma PD, Waukomis PD, and OHP Troop J will be operating the Left audio channel. If you do not have a balance control setup, you will hear double traffic at the same volume, which will make it very difficult to distinguish what you are hearing.

Please, watch the video below for information on setting up the app.
