• 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 just cant for the life of me get DSDplus to decode the audio so I am looking for another digital trunk group to try if you know of one.
Sorry to sound like Captain Obvious but did you download and copy lame_enc.dll to your DSD+ file?

Friend that is control channels for Vancouver (Ecomm) and you will not hear anything as it is full time ENCRYPTED
what we are looking for is the up to16 new sites that will populate the southern half Saanich to Victoria portion of the peninsula. Unless you have a 700 mhz yagi pointed that way I believe you will likely p/u only local signals. What you can do is use the know list printed in the database here for Vancouver to your findings.

THank you to both that responded. Yes I have the DLL file. I know for sure because if you try and run DSDplus from anywhere other than the directory that contains the DLL you get an error message. I see some listings for YVR and trunk groups but I dont get anything there. I live in a terrible location for radio, at the south base of a Metrotown ridge so IU get noithing from the North.

Just noticed that a couple of new frequencies (which I have not found yet) popped up on the crest system using Uni-trunker.

If I find the frequencies before someone else, I'll post them. If you find them, please post them.
