You can't hear them at all. After publicly stating that the new 700MHz county system would not be encrypted, the corrupt powers-that-be here in Baldwin County were lying like a rug through their teeth. What a shock. Don't bother trying to find Foley, Fairhope, and soon, Daphne PD either. You see, the public has no right to know here in the People's Republik of Baldwin County.

you mean our county has lied to us?wth?thanks for the reply and since posting that question i have picked up bits and pieces of diffrent departments but was away from radio when they came through and dont know what freq. they were on.lol.but its a shame what this county has become in a whole as being a great place to live since i was young.we do have the right to know though.we are losing are rights everyday slowly and this in a whole is going to get ugly before we die im afraid.ill keep scanning and plan on making some major upgrades within next few months or so just to have something to do and learn.thanks

I was picking them up for a couple of days on 154.95, but I guess they took care of that. Haven't heard them on that freq. since.

I haven't had a lot of listening time of late but I've heard nothing from BCSO. I have no issue with tactical and drugs ops being encrypted but I have yet to heare one routine dispatch call. I have all freqs on nearest tower to me programmed in, get Gulf Shores and OB fine, have my BCD996XT on search. Is there more I need to do in my program?

You will not be able to hear anyone on the county wide system.except for Orange Beach and Gulf Shores which are using FDMA. The rest of the agencies using the system are using TDMA (phase 2 P25). There is not a scanner on the market that will demodulate the TDMA transmissions. However, I feel very certain, we may see one in the next few years.

I see where GRE has a radio that will do TDMA X2, but not Phase II, so maybe their getting closer. Would much rather Uniden come out with one though.

Yes, a Uniden would be great, too bad a firmware update could not do the trick. I just hope they, or anyone, has the economic incentive to develop one.

Fire and Med Units are also using the system as well.
