A determined bus blogger, I really wanted access to the incident reports so in a way to get around the acid report ban I began getting live dispatch calls in early September.
The most interesting of these calls I would record and post on my blog.
It’s an open airwave that anyone can listen to and record from.
THERE IS NO EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY WHEN COMMUNICATING OVER AN OPEN AIR CHANNEL!
At the October board meeting I saw Josh Collins who “congratulated” me for finding a way around the acid report and told me what I was doing was completely legal and acceptable in the eyes of Trimet legal.
