• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Jefferson County Sheriff not receiving anything but Centerpoint

    I have a BCD536HP and 436HP and neither one will receive anything on the Sheriff's system other than Centerpoint channel. Does anyone know what is going on? I can pick up Bham FD dispatch and Bham PD South. Weird but need to be able to receive all the channels.

    Birmingham Fire Department monitoring

    I would like to monitor Birmingham Fire & Rescue but I do not have their frequencies. I know they transmit on a 800mhz freq but I have heard they also dispatch on an analog channel as well. Does anyone have the frequencies or tell me how I could monitor the BFD? Thanks for any help!
