• 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:

Transit is just conventional VHF last I saw. I believe public works is on the EDACS system. Strathroy Caradoc Police are testing on their MotoTRBO system as I type this.

Thanks for the update, I will be in the area next month. I'm surprised Strathry police are using MotoTRBO as the radios are not fully IC approved yet, pending!!! this is why Sarnia Transit upgrade is held up.
