• 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:

Any regular listeners out there? What's the latest? Are they encrypted? I have it programmed on my 996XT, along with the other ICIS stuff, decided to turn on that system and give it a try a several times recently on my commute, and during the span of an hour, only heard someone asking for a phone number. Is it really that dead for you guys?

Keep in mind Police and Fire ops are on their regular UHF channels, so the primary users of ICIS ends up being the public works folks which are primarily Mon-Fri activity.

But its definitely being used. If you program in a wild-card you can also at times pick up other activity such as Culver City, and even SGV users that end up on the BH site.

OK, that explains it I had dumped the regular channels out of the scanner awhile ago when I saw the PD talkgroups listed in the ICIS RR database. Thanks!

Those PD talk-groups are good, however only used for special/large events like SWAT deployments, Presidential visit, or sometimes by detectives especially when they are outside of the city.

The normal day to day PD and Fire stuff is handled on the conventional channels.

Also, I don't think it's a very strong signal as I sometimes have problems even receiving the control channel from the Mar Vista/Venice area. Last Sunday I did hear some type of operation on
TG 35968 but it was on the Culve City or Oat Mtn. site.
