• 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.

Nobody sells a program or a BCD536HP that decodes encrypted signals. It is against the law to decode encrypted signals with out the owners consent.

I bought the upgraded program or bc535hp. Why can't i get decoded encrypted messages
really??? Not to flame you but a bit of background research would tell you that there are no scanners or programs to decode encryption. If there were it would render the use of encryption useless.

Encryption is a reality of scanning today. Many services do not use it and there is lots of activity that can be monitored. My local system is encrypted however by monitoring Fire/ EMS/ Works/ Electricity and specific local users like malls and stores I rarely miss out on calls.
