c1mf:

Try listening to the Marion County feed on this site (links to Broadcastify) and see if that answers your question: Marion County Sheriff and Fire, Ocala Police

Go to this previous post and send a PM to khoelldobler. His is the first post in the thread. He is the local expert for Marion Co./Ocala and from his posts he is always willing to help out in programming for that area.

Go here:
Marion county, Fl. sheriff reception

Khoelldobler is a great person to get in touch with for any assistance in this area. Great guy, who will help you if you need any assistance. He was gracious enough to clone my scanner to his. The only thing encrypted is the MCSO SWAT channel. I have been considering making the feed private, (I want to do a few consults with some MCSO and OPD officers to see if they have any complaints.) Those on RadioReference are apparently committed to the hobby, instead of listening in to see if the police are looking for them.

Ocala PD & FD as well as Marion County Sheriif & Fire are P25 digital, very active, and basically non encrypted, except for MCSO Swat communications. I am in Ocala, and if you have a pro-106 and live in the Ocala area, look me up and I can clone your scanner so that you can access all the talkgroups with optimum custom settings for your listening pleasure. Ive cloned quite a few scanners for RR friends in the Ocala area.

I wouldn't bother asking for permission to feed any encrypted channels, the answer will be no way, and it will remain that way. They will not allow access to these coms, nor will they grant anyone special permission to rebroadcast a feed... don't even bother trying, just keep your standard county/city feed running for friends who live far from the area... you don't want to raise a red flag, because if you do, they may tell you that you have no permission to run any county/city feed at all. And, they do take this stuff seriously.

I am not going to request to feed any encrypted channels. I am wanting to contact them to see what their opinion is on the feed. If they feel strongly that it may endanger their officers, then I will gladly make the feed available to only RR and Broadcastify members. (They clearly have a true interest in the hobby, rather than attempting to get a head start on police who may be looking for them) There are some Talkgroups that I would like to block (investigators, OPD SWAT, Supervisors and the TAC channels.) These channels are not supposed to be broadcasted anyway. I would also not take lightly to having someone using the feed for wrongful reasons.

I am fairly new to digital scanners. I have a BC396XT and have successfully downloaded systems from Radio Reference both in PA and in FL. I live in Lake County and have heard the demise of Lake and Sumter County freqs to encryption. Recently I downloaded the Marion public safety sys, but have not heard a thing. I know it is in the clear having heard it on Broadcastify.......any suggestions?
Is the data correct?

mwness:

My family has a place in the Marion County section of The Villages and I could rarely if ever receive the Marion County system while I was visiting. Some of tthe guys here told me it was a matter of tower location for that system and distance etc.

I "used to" always enjoy listening to Lake & Sumter County stuff while I was there, but as you now know the public has been shut out by Encryption, including most recently The Villages own community patrol. Not sure if you live in The Villages yourself, but our hobby is pretty much dead there. Florida has truly become the national poster child for the Encryption trend.

You do not need to be a member of RR and/or Broadcastify to listen to the feeds. Anybody can listen in.

Thanks for the reply. I thought that it might be a reception problem. I am going to verify by trying the 396XT while in Ocala and giving a listen.
