• 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:

Dauphin Island PD & FD

Will probably be going back to Dauphin Island this summer for vacation. Heard the p25 some recently when I went on vacation in Baldwin. Wondering is Dauphin Island Town PD & FD using the same talkgroup? Think I remember on the old EDCAS system they were but not sure. Like what channel/talkgroup is each on? And is the police encrypted and fire? Did not see them in the database. The Police has their own dispatcher when I was there last. Who dispatches Fire?
