• 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:

I know that Fish and Game Commission is now on AWIN, but I heard activity on their talk-around frequency of 153.9350 MHz this afternoon (transmitting CSQ), so they are still not entirely on AWIN.

Don't throw out any of the old VHF-FM frequencies. AHTD, AFC, & AG&FC radio systems are all designated as backups to AWIN in the event of an outage or emergency.

AGF has some areas that AWIN doesn't cover that their current VHF covers. Mt Holly, Arkansas area is one of those.

Most State Agencies have a mix of radios, from Motorola APXes (6000, 7000, and very few 8000 so far), to a few with old XTSes (Being phased out), to Kenwoods, to both an VHF HT and a P25 one (And dual mobiles)... But as the Phase II upgrades come into play, you will see more and more of the newer generation radios on hips and in vehicles. The dual banders and multi banders will be showing up more and more so that they will not need to have 2 or more radios to talk to County/Municipalities and poor coverage areas (also being addressed with more sites etc.).as well as use AWIN. And yeah you can be sure some of the guys n gals will even have the multi mode toys that do DMR/P25, or NXDN/P25.
