• 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:

    Single Frequency P25

    Can a single frequency (vhf or uhf) that is using P25 only use phase 1? or...Can they optionally use X2 or phase 2 on the single frequency? I always hear/read about X2 and phase 2 as it relates to trunking, but was just curious how this might/could work with a single frequency using P25?
