Hmm, I'm still hearing them on the AFRN P25 system. They may have permanently switched over.

csuggs73,
It does indeed sound like DPD has switched over to the AFRN digital system permanently. You will need a P25 digital capable scanner to pick up the AFRN network.

I just updated the live audio hardware for the Decatur/Morgan CO Public Safety feed to reflect this change and change to some better hardware!

Here is the feed link if you are interested in listening until you can get another scanner:

Thanks for the link and for providing the feed. I will use it until I can upgrade. Monitoring the scanners is one of my favorite hobbies. Thank you again for the live feed from me and everyone who listens locally.

Glad to help! Thank you for the kind words on the feed!

Here is a page of some digital scanners, just about any of which should work for the new system in use:
Digital Police Scanner Radios

You might also check Amazon.com as their prices are usually very competitive.

Thanks again!
