• 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:

I have a relative who lives in Houma, LA and is looking to get a BCD-396T scanner, so he can listen to police, fire, ems, etc. I realize LATIE is a P25 system and so the BCD-396T should pick that up, but are most of the agencies encrypted on there, or will he be able to listen to a good bit unencrypted?

He bought a BC-246T but it appears without digital you are very limited in listening to anything around Houma, LA, because it seems almost everything is on LATIE.

Thanks for any help!

Yep, the BCD-396T can listen to the LATIE system. I listen to it when I am Baton Rouge visiting family. Not sure how much in Homua is encrypted. Someone else can chime in and let us know.

The only widespread use of encryption threatened (it has not happened yet) is Lafayette Parish and the city of Lafayette. There have been scattered reports of special ops encryption, but generally a 396T will work quite well everywhere on the LATIE system except in the New Orleans area where dealing with the simulcast sites causes minor monitoring problems.
