• 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:

They are unscannable.

The format Halton Police use is Aegis or Provoice. If you scan the frequencies in conventional mode you can here the digital encryption noise when those talkgroups transmit. But you would still not hear any part of the conversation. Just informational purpose.

Actually most of those TG's are AEGIS Digital and unmonitorable but I have heard them using Analog in the clear on both TG 157 and 161, especially on TG 157.

Good info! Even if a scanner can't pick up what's going on in these talkgroups, at least you know what you're missing, that is...you will know you're not missing regular operational comms.

If you run E-Trunker and enter these talkgroups in, you will see when they are in use on individual towers in Halton or Simulcasted.

Look for Radio Id's 5608 - 5625 in use for Drug Sqd
