• 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:

A new public safety communication platform is a M/A-COM system
provided through TransCore, Inc., based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The
system is tightly integrated into the CONXX backbone and delivers improved
coverage in areas where public safety communications has been a
longstanding problem. The new mobility capability can turn any public
safety vehicle into a moving office, allowing officers and first responders
to spend more time in the community.

Rumor had it that a municipal wireless network was going in place in cambria county.

Accross any IP infrastructure network VO-IP telephony, LMR Radio, and DAta can be moved.
A quick check of http://www.conxx.net/ shows that it is an ip backbone on a wireless platform for data (of course you can move VOIP telephony, and LMR as well as data accross a data network with the proper equipment).

As far as the RF side I believe a new UHF radio network was installed on analog/narrowbanded FM. What that means is non narrowbanded equipment such as scanners may pickup more than just the sole channel trying to be monitored.

Shouldn't affect the scanner listeners in the area. (Source http://www.radioreference.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94824)

I am sure one of the locals from Cambria will pipe in sometime today.
