• 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:

Is the P25 system in Belleville for PD encrypted? I programmed it in but don't seem to be getting any activity on it other then some encrypted sounding stuff...BUT it doesn't show as an encrypted frequency on the scanner.....just curious if anyone actively listened to this system

The freq(s) and APCO25 listing as per your URL are correct.
Their footprint appears somewhat limited and I experience
a number of shadow areas only 20 Km east of their rptr.

Your link shows the frequencies as conventional. Why did you program it as trunked?
Because i programmed it as conventional and it only came in garbled when i did, so i thought that maybe it had to be programmed as a moto P25 system in order to decode P25, but of course now i dont even get garbled stuff, i get zilch now......any reason why when i programmed it conventional why it didnt come through?

Since they're conventional channels, changing it to a trunking system won't do any good. The scanner will be looking for a control channel which doesn't exist and you won't hear anything.

Since you haven't told us what kind of scanner you're using, it's hard to troubleshoot.

If you've got a 396/996, make sure you've got tone search turned off on those channels.

If it's an older scanner, you might need to tweak the digital settings.

There are 2 repeaters. One in belleville, and one in oak hills, north of belleville near stirling. They both repeat the same traffic. Belleville is 142.035 p25 , and the oak hills repeater is 143.115 p25. Try both, and see if you get the same thing. They are conventional repeaters. 143.115 will simulcast the 142.035 traffic. The 143.115 repeater is to cover the stirling-rawdon township area, which is dispatched by belleville pd as well.
