    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:

Hello,

I was over in Napa last night, and I noticed that Napa SO dispatch is still on Napa SO Tac, not Napa RED where they were until sometime last year. Not new info or really surprising, but wondering if they are going to stay there.

The real surprise for me was that Napa PD was dispatching on Napa PD BLUE. I had not heard that before.

Has the SO and PD split up the unified dispatch system and reverted to their own channels? If so, what happened? Any insight from Napa locals?

Thanks!

My understanding was that Napa RED was converted to simulcast first, they began using that as their primary, and then at some point 155.430 was also converted to simulcast. However, 155.430 has always retained the name "SO Primary" so maybe they are going to stay there now. I'm thinking the DB should probably be updated, but I'd also love to hear from someone with some inside knowledge.
