• 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:

EF Johnson to Build P25 Systems in 2 Wisconsin Counties (9/26/11)
EF Johnson Technologies said it will partner with Two-Way Communications and Pointon Communications to build Project 25 (P25) systems for Sawyer and Iowa counties in Wisconsin. Both systems will leverage Wisconsin Interoperable System for Communication (WISCOM), developed for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to provide mobile coverage for 95 percent of the state.
“By utilizing the statewide WISCOM backbone, Sawyer and Iowa counties will benefit from upgraded interoperable communications systems that are designed to address their specific needs while also enjoying the significant cost savings that result from using the shared infrastructure,” said Andrew Adams, president and CEO of EF Johnson. “We look forward to working with these counties to help them fully leverage all the capabilities these robust, flexible systems have to offer.”
The company will work with Sawyer County to build out a hybrid P25 system. In addition, the county will use two WISCOM sites located within its boundaries to provide interoperable communications among public-safety agencies.
“Sawyer County is maximizing its use of WISCOM by utilizing existing sites within our county and bridging some of our current conventional analog channels with WISCOM talk groups,” said Brian Cody, ambulance administrator and emergency government coordinator for Sawyer County. “By doing so, we will enhance our communications capabilities and substantially reduce our costs.”
In Iowa County, EFJohnson will build a trunked VHF P25 system with five sites. The system, based on the company’s hybrid architecture, will include two conventional sites operating in a hybrid mode connected to WISCOM. Both systems will be P25 compliant with nonproprietary technology to ensure interoperability. Deployments are expected to be completed by mid-year 2012.

Mods, please move this to the WISCOM thread where it belongs...both these counties are coming onto WISCOM, so there doesn't need to be a separate thread.
