• 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:

For status bits, if the TGID you monitor are not evenly divisible by 16, then the system is using status bits.

For a very basic example, let's say you pick up a TGID of 16001, this means simply that TGID 16000 + Status Bit 1 is being used. If this is the case, enable your status bits.

More info here, noticed that status bits 8 to 15 and encrypted (DES)

If it's a "P25 Motorola 800 / 700 MHz digital system", it seems pretty unlikely that it would use any "status bits" (at least, as far as that term relates to the low 4 bits of a talkgroup ID), since those don't exist on P25 systems.
