• 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:

Was talking to someone from Fairfield County last night and was told Bridgeport Fire is going digital in the very near future, same frequency, just digital instead of anolog. This is the 2nd person to tell me this in less than a week. Both people are definately people in the "know" from things that have occurred in the past - so ,I'm banking this is the case. My question is, if you are going to het a new system because of present issues, why keep the same channels? Why not just jump to UHF or something. Good thing is that at least nobody had to get killed from their present POS system, so that's one good thing.

Haven't heard that yet !!!

I work for the City of Bridgeport and I haven't heard anything like that yet but I will ask around. They're always cryin' the blues when it comes to dividing the $$$ but have no problem spendin' it. So this doesn't suprise me. If they had gone to a repeater system when the P.D. did they wouldn't have had problems. So it's no wonder like you said that no one has gotten hurt on the job. If I find any thing out I will repost. This is my first by the way.
