• 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:

Does anyone know if they are going digital, and if so what type and when. I heard they are going, but haven't gotten any specifics. Thanks

I know that you are new of this Radio Reference.com, but you posted the question in two separate posts on the Maryland Forum. It is considered bad manners to double post questions on this board. You must remember that it may take some to time to have your question answered, since people have other things to do like work and don’t sit at the computer 24/7 waiting for posts to show up.

I don’t have the any information on Frederick County, since only monitor them when in the area for work. I wouldn’t purchase any analog scanners anymore, since many systems are changing to digital everyday.

I have not heard of an changeover

I have not heard of any changeover for Frederick County, if they did they would have alot of towers to add as they have dead spots with the current analog system.

Sorry about the double post. I had posted in the trunking forum by mistake and it was moved to this page. And to make matters worse, I realized my mistake and reposted it here not knowing it would be moved. Frederick County is still Anolog at this time. But I heard they were going dig. sometime in the near future. I am going to try and talk to one of the radio techs when I get a chance. Maybe they will give some insight into it.
