Main action on Channel 1 in downtown.  When it gets hot they move to Channel 12 or 10.  Channel 12 is 460.400, which you can get on Baofeng or other HT radios.  Signal is pretty strong, it is clear on my OEM Baofeng rubber ducky antenna here in north Richardson.

Link Posted: 5/31/2020 3:01:45 PM EST

Chief Hall comments:

Curfew in downtown/Uptown/DE/Victory from 7PM until 6AM, for the next several days
Shutting down inbound roads starting at 3PM.

500 DPS in town to help
Irving and Allen cops helping. (We also heard Garland on the radio last night).

No info on sword guy's attackers, investigating.

"We're not talking about protestors, we're talking about criminals"

"We are committed to the same level of intense followup, relentless followup and prosecution of those who are committing crimes..."

large numbers of arrestees are not Dallas residents

I think there was a question about the pre-placed bicks, but she said she had no info

Lots of interference on Ch 12.  Possibly someone outside of DPD screwing with them.  Switching to Ch 10 (460.225) at times and maybe others.

Air1, you can see the concentration on Houston St and 35E as the Omni protest broke up, and one trip up to Freeman's Cemetery.

The 'conspiracy' in that case would be the Antifa choosing to hold their event where brick piles were available.  More a matter of planning & intel than conspiracy

My theory is that the professionals (Antifa) are concentrating in Dallas because A.) there are more of the people who they can use there, B.) FWPD is way more likely to crack heads and Tarrant county courts are much harsher than the Dallas county equivalent and C.) there's a lot more high value stuff to tear up in Dallas than Fort Worth.

That's not the only pile of mystery bricks found this weekend. I don't know if the others have similar explanations or not.

If anyone is listening to scanner/radio it looks like  they moved off of channel 12 to chan 10 car to car. Someone was playing rap music on 12 then someone came on and said they were changing channel's. I guess someone hacked their frequency, not too hard for anyone with minimal radio knowledge since DPD is one of last on regular analog UHF.

They are no longer being 'jammed' on either station though, so I'm guessing homeboy's Baofeng must have run out of battery

DPS parking at Lamar and Wood, at the HUD building.

DPS helo is on station instead of DPD Air 1.  See above FlightRadar link.

Big group came down Lamar, then around the CC hotel, across Pioneer Park, and now NB on Field again.  Doing laps to keep getting cornered by DPD.

Group just marching around, south on Lamar from Hooters area.   Pretty much just walking, with cops following and grabbing any troublemakers.

Main radio just called about curfew starting at 7.  Warn people once to get out (she said city limits but I think meant curfew area), then arrest.

EB Elm into Deep Ellum, just like last night.  Some running, I think they just announced the curfew.
'Tis the witching hour, let's see what happens.

Planning for a trap on a long block without an exit street in the middle.  Looking for an opportunity.

Plenty happening on the radio; they're chasing the groups down like foxhounds as they splinter.  Mostly on channel 12 (460.225)

Just sent out word that media is not subject to curfew.

Yesterday sounded like maybe 4-5 groups of officers conducting operations.  Today sounds like at least ten, far more different voices & element numbers.

Hmm...

There's been a guy --who sounds like he has authority-- coming on numerous times saying "we got the curfew we asked for; why are officers standing around in X areas not arresting people?  Bring these guys in."

Sounds like they are taking a much more proactive approach, instead of waiting for the riots to turn violent to react.

Dallas is rolling a Dart bus as a paddy wagon tonight.

I think I’m going to work in a bit. I started pulling gear out, stuff I forgot I bought and laid it out on the bed. My wife just kind of glanced over at all of it while listening to the radio in the background, didn’t say a word and went back to her Facebook.

It's very interesting; the word "paddy wagon" is coming over the radio incessantly; I heard it once every few minutes or so yesterday, even during the worst of it.

Whether it's due to enforcement action or an intentional strategy, the protests are clearly far more fragmented, and officers are gobbling them up like Hungry Hungry Hippos.

The 460.225 & 460.400 radio frequencies are for downtown elements, but I imagine if things stretched out toward the lake it'd be many of the same folks responding.

Anyone know of a good feed/etc for Ft. Worth?  I'm in Arlington, comfortably nestled between the two metros like a mouse in a lady's sweater, but I would kinda like to know if stupid shit is coming my way before it gets here.

Peaceful march in Sherman this evening. One disturbance call at the end of the march at the meet up point that amounted to nothing.
One protestor tried to incite the crowd to tear down a Confederate statue on the courthouse lawn but was shouted down by the crowd.
Quiet, so far.
