• 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:

    Telemetry data on LEA (Area 1D)

    Somewhat frequently, for like an hour or so at a time, I am getting some data noise on the LEA channel in my area, 155.790. The data sounds very similar to SCADA telemetry -- you know, like the data that is sent by water well monitors, gas monitoring stations, and the like. Normally, assuming...

    STARCOM Help

    Is it possible to add just ISP Districts 12 & 13 to a Uniden Bearcat BCD536HP using Sentinel without adding all of the ISP districts around the state? And, if so, how? I can get the ISP if I use our zip code, but when I attempt to add the ISP's STARCOM network using Sentinel to a FL created...

    Multi Tower counties.

    This maybe asked/answered, but I haven't found it. In a county like Cook, how do I know which tower(s) to program for ISP. I live in Du Page and it's easy, one tower, one set of freq's. Thanks in advance, Rich

    Iowa State Fair public safety

    I was looking around here for information on what the ISF does for a radio system. They have a 800MHz TRBO system but that is for the 'commercial' side of the fair, vendors, trash collection, etc. The Iowa State Patrol has traditionally done law enforcement for the fair, with the assistance of...

    ISP Zone/Dist scanning on P25

    I would like to program my BCD396XT for the Illinois State Police by Zone and/or District, for traveling in the state. My question is how do I decide which “sites” I need to put in, to cover the Zone/Districts? I tried using the whole state “site” list, but the scan time...

    ISP simplex

    Not too long ago, there were isp speed traps in Evansville. I picked up a couple of guys on simplex at 161.73. They came in good, so I didn't get off the frequency. I looked up licenses, but all I got were remote pick-ups. I'm not surprised. My scanner has a weird if, but I wasn't sure what the...

    ISP R3 Feed to replace Nampa PD?

    I'm floating the idea of replacing my Nampa PD Primary and Ch B feed with an ISP Region 3 feed... At this point we're a couple of weeks away from NPD making the switch to the 700 MHz system which will silence the analog-only feed I maintain. Thoughts? Thanks!
