• 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:

    Los Alamos LAPD frequencies

    Warrick county indiana system

    I had been told that Warrick County was going totally to the new p-25 system due to damage to their existing LTR antenna being damaged. Can anyone verify or debunk this? I have heard some p-25 transmissions, mostly sheriff dept and ems. but not enough to support the entire county.
