All is quiet in scannerland on the old Motorola Naperville and Aurora trunked systems for the most part. Couple of keyups and a fire department looking for a radio check.

As of last night NFD was still on the old system. They said that at shift change in the morning they were doing the changeover.

This is why I never set up a feed to monitor Naperville PD/FD/etc. I knew the day was not far off when my feed would become obsolete.

This sucks. No wonder why property taxes in DuPage county are astronomical.

"The better coverage is really our main concern," Bell said. "But what we'll have is an encrypted channel that can't be scanned."

Ah, he beat me to it.

They do have contingencies. For example, if Aurora goes down then they can use Naperville's system and vice-versa.

I believe there is also microwave backup.

And if that doesn't work they can always use it to cook dinner!

On second thought maybe not, they probably would need special OpenSky microwave training!

Is there no hope to scan these channels without an encryption key? How long until everyone is doing this and radio scanning is obsolete?
