• 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:

While browsing thru the Clay database, I noticed someone updated with the upcoming April, 1 change to a digital system. Now, it's after the 1st and they are still on the LTR multinet freqs. Any intel as to if I am going to be the proud owner of a 200.00 baby monitor and 500.00 more to the broke side? If they do indeed change, I just hope it's trunk-trackable and NOT encrypted!!!

Why does everyone think if there is a change it involves encryption?

Probably because of what Jacksonville SO and Nassau County SO did when they switched to new radio systems.

Yeah seems to me like scanning in NE fl is slowly going down the drain...

I have heard they don't know what if they want digital or digital encrypted. I heard that awhile back for F/R and SO/PD will switch to that. Is Clay Co switch yet not able to pick them up in St Aug since I'm a little too far.

I monitor the Scan Jax yahoo group, and the only change was that a few more frequencies were added. They should show up in the DB soon.

I wonder if it is a April Fool thing. Looks like they haven't changed the system yet or they are working the bugs out or not switching yet.

Has anyone ever seen an LTR Multi Net digital system? It's not APCO 25 compliant and with the 700 band coming and in that band all mutual aid channels are required to be APCO 25. Why waste taxpayer dollars if this is true.

And just what in My statement led you to believe I think it does? I simply stated that I "hope" they don't go that route IF they do change systems so I can still monitor them.

I may have been seeing things, but I was just down there last week. St. Augustine PD still had VHF antennas on the cars. I Could hear Fire on 154.415 for fire from location in Jax.

They looked at me funny because I didn't have a "twang" in my dialect. Then they'd seen my ball cap!!!
