• 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:

    DMR in Fargo/Moorhead Area

    I just got a Tytera MD-380, after all the posts and news about the firmware being reverse engineered. I know it doesn't do it now, but hoping someone comes up with DSTAR/P25/SystemFusion, etc for it. I tried putting a couple of conventional DMR channels in, and can't seem to get it to decode...

    Wondering if the Tytera MD380 will allow me to program in commercial DMR users without having to know the talk group and instead use a 'monitor mode'? This is a problem with the CS700. EDIT: I realize that color code and timeslot will still need to be known. While we're at it, I'm wondering...
