• 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 think I heard the control channel when I was searching for sites on Sunday. I don't recall getting an email about it being down.
Same - I haven't seen any alert about it being down or having issues.

@mshadwick - could it be that your programming got changed somehow and it has the wrong frequencies now?

It is not a programming issue. I am able to put other towers in and works fine. Just not working on 856.1875. I need to take a look at the antenna and feed line.
Thank ya'll!!!!

Newbie here, can someone with more experience tell me if/ when the p25 phase ii transition is going to happen? Is it worth buying a phase ii scanner at the moment?
Also, I was glancing over the Talk-Group ID's for the AWIN systems and wanted to mention that quite a few are inaccurate/ missing, how can I contribute?
with love, slobbonmycob

Transition is in progress note but it will still be a little while before it is phase ii. However if I was buying a scanner I'd for sure to phase ii capable now.

As for updates, you hit submit at the top of the database page which needs the updates. Be sure you only submit verified information. Care has been taken to get it accurate. What are you seeing that's wrong...? You can tell us here but do use the submit feature to submit it.
