• 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:

When searching for Worcester System ID Search I get scrambled transmissions on the new finds. The radio shows PT0 and PT1 in the display. Does anyone know what this means and can I correct the problem?

Many, actually most, of the Talk Groups are encrypted. The one you are hearing is one of them. That's why the audio is garbled. The talk group is also Phase 2. The PT0 indicates that the TG is on slot 1 of that channel.

For a list of the clear TGs on the Worcester system, go to Scan-ne.net, then look in the Wiki.
