    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:

So I finally ordered a BCD 996XT. I have freescan set up, and have Lancaster set up the way I want it. I will just have to connect it when it gets here.

I have it put as

System: Lancaster
Group 1: Police
Group 2:Fire/EMS
Group 3:Misc

Just two questions. I should be able to pick up Dauphin County fire dispatch from Manhiem Township right? I know I picked it up in Ephrata before. Or would I pick it up better using their digital system? I know their dispatch and Ops are open.

Another question is, since I goto dauphin alot, I know their police side is encrypted however I take notice Middletown is only digital.

"11301 2c25 D MdltwnPD Dsp Middletown Boro. PD - Dispatch Law Dispatch " Do they use this alot? Or do they just use the encrypted channels? I was thinking about putting the system in my scanner and using the TMI site Freqs.
