• 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 live in Ajax. Which for those of you who don't know is east of Toronto in Durham regeion. I want to purchase a police scanner to listen to police in my area. I know in my are the police use an 800 trunked system. Do I need a digital scanner to listing to this or Toronto police or will something like the bct 8 by Uniden be fine. Thanks.

Durham police are using an iDen system.. Similar to the Telus Mike.. It is currently un-monitorable. The OPP can be heard using a digital scanner. Toronto can be heard using a non-digital scanner.
