• 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:

Any indication of when the "bridge" patching will cease on the EDACS side?

It's obvious the EDACS simulcast sites are offline as the Mount Morrison site has been on the air for several weeks now. I hear it loud and clear up here.

Ironic that they will end the EDACS era at the site where they started it all in 1992.

Encryption prevents the people knowing what is going on their communities
Another way of thinking perhaps; the Denver community now instead has to rely upon filtered and very often biased media reporting/regurgitations as 99 percent of the Denver community has already been doing in the past. We scanner enthusiasts are just a super small sample of the overall Denver citizen population. I have been very thankful that I was able to monitor the system live while it’s lasted.

I heard an RTD driver had some input. Told a guy with 4 radios on his belt to turn them down on the bus. The drivers' logic was, with encryption, at least the guy would be down to 3 radios on his belt.

The police have many methods to communicate to the citizens they serve, the PIO and social media channels.

You are beating a dead horse at this point. The decision has already been made and is in place. Stop complaining to this group about spilled milk. We all understand the implications of encryption.

So your suggestion is for people to accept the inevitable and just lay down and take it?

No, but, since you are assuming what my suggestion is, please reference post #78.

Look at the new denver p25 system Denver EMS is no longer encrypted but PD FD and SD are encrypted
"No longer encrypted." implies that they were at one time and for some reason they decided not to. Not true, they were never encrypted.

Well we all know Denver is Encrypting there channels, EMS was never Encrypted. Denver will NOT reverse to un-Encrypted. Mostly all neighboring city of Denver is Encrypted and no incident's. Yes I live in Arvada and there Encrypted my next door city is Westminster( think Westy has been Encrypted for 3 years now) and they are Encrypted. So finding others things to listen to Wheat ridge PD, Golden PD, State Patrol. Like Erik said above your beating a dead horse. I think it time to put this thread to rest and move on to other stuff.

Give it time before someone gets killed because of DPD and DFD's stupidity
You make a supposition with no supporting background or argument here. (Or in any other posts above) Back this up.

What specifically are the agencies doing that, beyond your one line opinion snippets, will get someone killed? Get who killed? The agencies are able to communicate within, and on interop freqs with others as necessary. Where's the danger?

Put some supporting evidence or intellectually considerable argument up for our review and discussion.
