    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 hear Oakland PD listening to CCCC central site.
Coincidentally this just happened to me a few days ago. On my CO CO CO. EBRCS site Oakland came booming in along with Berkeley. I have those central sights for Oakland locked out for Co. CO. CO. ERCS yet I still got Oakland and Livermore too.

I checked sentinel program to see that I locked out right sites and sure enough they were locked out so I don't know why that happened.

Sounds like Union City PD's official switchover to being dispatched by Fremont PD is happening right now (9pm). I think lately it has been from 1am to 9am that they are dispatched by FPD but I think its going to be full-time now.

Hearing what sounds like ALCO and Santa Clara County SO units on Southwest cell TGID 10210 is this an "East Bay Interop" talk group undiscovered?

Harris radios are not compatible with Motorola and therefore will not work on EBRACS.

Does anyone know if Harris radios will work on the EBRCS system? Or just Motorla?
Yes I believe Harris radios can work on Motorla p25 systems. They just don't have some of the same functionality

I'm hearing Hayward PD on TG 3255 this morning. Sounds like normal dispatch operations. I'll send a note to update the database.
Hello! Ever since December 1st it has been quiet for Hayward PD. Would you know what happened? Did they change frequencies? The Fire channel seems normal. I can't find anything anywhere. :(

If you will read the posts above your message, you will see that they have changed frequencies, to the EBRCS trunked digital system. You will need to obtain a digital scanner in order to hear them.

It's not a single frequency to give you. If you go to the database page, all the system info is listed under EBRCS

Hello just another quick question will this scanner work? It seems good for Hayward PD. I just want to double check with someone who is knowledgeable with scanners. I may purchase this. http://tinyurl.com/zx998ut

EBRCS Issue - change?

Anyone having any issues with talk groups they have been monitoring? So far today, I am not able to pick up anything.

I've been listening to Hayward PD. Worked fine last night. This morning, nothing on PD or Fire, digital and conventional. Since Hayward just recently switched over, thought I'd check their conventional channels - nothing.

I added Union City PD and Fremont talk groups just to see if it was Hayward, and still nothing.
