• 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:

Emissions for Analog and DMR, though only one of the 2 DMR listings, for voice no data, so I put this at an 50/50 on which way it goes. Also note, this is for both PD and FD, so if they do go DMR, one slot will be PD other slot will be FD.

Interesting. The FD still are dispatched by both Faulkner & Van Buren counties. Sounds like it may be a local on scene channel for PD and FD..
Yes, it would likely just be their "private" channel - for dept operations, fire ground, and the like.

Keep in mind that having the license doesn't mean they will be using DMR immediately - several agencies have been licensed for a digital voice mode (DMR or NXDN, for example) and are still using their same analog channels a few years later. It's usually all about the money and when they can afford to take the plunge and upgrade all of the radios...
