• 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:

Wow, interesting! When did all this happen?
October of 2008. They originally had everything, including FD, encrypted, but they couldn't interop with Hall, Forsyth, and DeKalb FD's. Left the hospital/EMS channels encrypted. Gwinnett PD/SO, and all city PD's went encrypted and haven't been heard since. One day I was hearing everything, the next, nada:( Hall FD and jail TG's are not encrypted. But, if you do program in some of the 5XXX TG's, you may be surprised what you can hear:wink: Forsyth and DeKalb remain in the clear. As is Atlanta FD/PD.

A lot of interesting comms early this morning on Gwinnett FD with the truck wreck just north of me on I-85.

Interesting comms; yea I'd say so. Tried to to figure out if the breakdown was dispatch or FD but it kind of sounds like everyone including whoever was reporting the info were all half asleep! All turned out fine though.
