• 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 have imported conventional and added a wildcard. all I hear is garbled reception.. I have also tried different color codes. still nothing.. I do not know the TGID . so I am wondering would that help ? also if it was encrypted why would I not have the letter E shown on my scanner screen. Any ideas what I could try ?? or if I am not doing something right?? thank you for your time and feed back

If you've programmed them as conventional DMR and and left the CC, SL, and TG set to wildcard (*), that is all you need.

If you're hearing garbled voice, it's probably using some form of "privacy" - doesn't have to actually be formal encryption. Either way, privacy, encryption, etc - if they are using something like that, you won't be able to monitor.

If possible, capture a recording of what you are hearing and post it. Then we'll be able to confirm.

If your programming was wrong you wouldn't hear anything at all. The fact that you are hearing garbled voice almost guarantees it's encrypted.
