• 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:

Confused about P25 Phase 2 system

I am looking into to buying a police scanner. The areas I would be using it in (Knox, Blount, and Sevier counties in Tennessee) seem to use the P25 Phase II system. I understand that the scanner would have to be compatible with this system. While researching online I saw that the phase 2 system could be encrypted? I also read that if it was encrypted you were not able to listen, even with a phase 2 scanner.

My question is whether or not the BCD325P2 would work for the counties listed above. Also if there is a better fit for another scanner, all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Andrew

Before you buy a radio, you should ask this in the Tennessee forums and have someone confirm there is stuff to listen too..
