• 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:

So if they are swapping the radios out with new Open Sky radios will the problem get any better? Most likely not.

Harris wins award

Look at the following: Harris wins an award but not for any of it's "secure" systems such as Open Sky.

The Unity XG-100 supports digital APCO P25 secure and analog FM communications across VHF, UHF, 700 MHz and 800 MHz public safety bands in a single portable radio. Its capabilities enable first responders to use a single radio

Well, if this radio works, and it looks like the user don't have to swap antennas to change bands, then good for Harris. Serious competiton for Thale's Liberty. Any one find it interesting that Harris left OpenSky out of the radio. hmmmm. Maybe an indication of the direction Harris intends to take with the future of OpenSky.

And if that antenna is truly quad band VHF/UHF/700/800, I want to know what the connector is. The antenna for this radio may become a sought after item for folks with handheld scanners.
