• 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 thought I read a few months ago that they were going Nexedge but can't find it. Best to verify that before you buy the scanner. You could listen to other things with the digital scanner as well even if you can't listen to the sheriff.

While trying to investigate to see if there were any press releases or other notes I found that the sheriff's website has been hacked!

NXDN is what I heard over a year ago that it would be.

BUT check the other frequencies of the small departments that simulcast/patch the VHF Repeater, see if they are still analog???
