EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - State police and the Federal Communications Commission have had it with the static - and other nonsense - being broadcast by whoever has stolen two-way radios from two southwestern Pennsylvania volunteer fire departments.

WJAC-TV (http://bit.ly/1ew2KZN ) says investigators are hoping to trace the static using special FCC equipment which can pinpoint where the radios are being used.

Cambria County Emergency Management officials released audio of some of the radio traffic on Tuesday. They’re hoping someone can help identify whoever stole the radios from the South Fork and Summerhill fire departments more than a week ago.

The stolen radio traffic includes expletives, singing and just nonsensical words.

Until the thieves are caught, on-edge emergency dispatchers are concerned about wasting time with those kinds of messages when a real firefighter desperately needs help.
