• 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:

Hi, this is my first post here. I am not very knowledgable with scanners as it seems most of you are lol. I have a Uniden BC95XLTB and have been listening to the rcmp on it 24/7 for the last 4 or more years on 155.7 . Just about 2 weeks ago all of a sudden I am not able to hear anything only a buzzing noise and a beep every now and then. Does anyone know what is going on here? Did the rcmp all of a sudden change to digital or what? I was planning on getting a new digital scanner (considering the Uniden BCD396XT) but I didnt want to buy that if I still have the same problem. Can anyone tell me what is on the go?? and aslo what you think of the BCD396XT? Thanks!!

Your suspicions are correct. P25 is slowly being rolled out across NL.
Better save up for that 396XT.
I'd still save the 95XLT for conventional analog traffic tho. It'd be useful for FD/EMS/AIR traffic.
Sorry, I don't have any info on the new system since it's not in the North East Avalon Region yet.
