• 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 which provider? There are a couple in Sussex County - I know that Redi-call used to be in the database, but am not sure if it is still there and USA mobility is 929.6125 .... that now has me thinking, is there a way to decode the messages so that I can get rid of my pager if I know the group pins.......

There is a software package called PDW that I used to set up a PC based backup alerting system for a previous job. (We had county EMS paging and yes, I had a pager on the system) A scanner with a Dtap and a decent computer with a soundcard is what you need. However, the "radio police" here at RR will be happy to tell you that decoding POCSAG or FLEX is illegal. Decode at your own risk.

The statement concerning the legality of monitoring THIS system is not true. Although it is generaaly illegal to monitor a private paging carrier, this system is operated as a public safety system; so this rules does not apply.
