• 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:

    Can not get West Chester on my BCD436HP

    I just bought the BCD436HP and I don't know what I am doing wrong. I loaded West Chester PD, PA in as it's own favorite list from the sentinel program and I've barely heard a word.

    York County Convention Channels

    Anyone know/hear what I'm hearing? I've been hearing traffic on 1 unidentified channel in P25 Mode. 500.887500 MHz NFM with NAC 037 sounds like Police mostly, maybe a little EMS. Closest result of RR search is Chester Co. but I'm definitely hearing York comms. Any input would be appreciated :)

    Dauphin County Public Safety & Dauphin County Fire/EMS DOWN - Pennsylvania

    Hello, could someone tell me why Dauphin County Public Safety went down. It has been down for some time now, but I am wondering why I can no longer find it on my scanner app. Are they now encrypting these feeds, have they switched the format to BrokenSky, or did the provider drop the stream?

    Do You Think The PA STARNET Drama Will Ever End...?

    Ok, so it only takes one look at Google to find out just how crummy the Opensky platform can be, and just how many problems it has caused agencies. Here in PA we have been unfortunate enough to gain a statewide (...in theory) Opensky system. If you look at the sticky in the PA forum you can...

    I live in southeast PA Montgomery County. I am looking to purchase a BC396XT and do not mind spending the money on it, but I am worried about the possibility of the Opensky project that PA may continue to rollout. I know PSP and others already use it in some areas, but I don't want to see my...
