Because they felt the need to have encryption.

That's it exactly, although how to make fizzy yellow water (Bud) isn't exactly a great secret; I've made better beer at home. . .

Because, you know, Columbus is a college town and we can't have college students hijacking the beer, even if it is Budweiser ... /s

They are afraid Brewdog might get their secrets


Though I'd bet the most interesting thing you might hear is a maintenance man.

Every time I would faintly hear the system in south Columbus all I would get is the failsoft beeps. I thought it was dead for a long time.

Even if it were in the clear, I would imagine the radio traffic would make for a good lullaby.

The factory in St. Louis, MO also runs with encryption. It sucks, but it is what it is. They paid for it, they do what they want with it.

Motorola Type 2 Smartnet (analog)?
What are they using for encryption, an ASN flavor or voice inversion?
