• 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 was talking with a friend of mine about Charlottesville's 800 MHz system and the fact that they still have to upgrade from Motorola smartnet to p25 phase 1 or phase 2. He said that Charlottesville is already on phase 1. I don't think that's correct. I know that vsp is on p25 phase 1 per the radio reference database, but I doubt that Charlottesville is. When I have scanned Charlottesville and vsp on my 436hp, every time there is activity in a channel for EITHER system, it comes up on the display 'nfm p25'. I thought I read somewhere that for phase 1 it would come up 'p1' or 'p2' in the display for which version the system is on. Can anybody clarify?

Which scanner? The 436 will show "P25" for Phase 1, and "PT0" or "PT1" for Phase 2 (slot 0 or 1). If you are seeing "P25" that's P25 Phase 1.

Charlottesville has an analog control channel with a digital or analog talk channel depending on the talk group. Smart Zone. While the audio is P25 phase 1 . The whole system does not qualify as a P25 system
