• 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:

Thun, I merged your existing thread with the new one you created in the Australian forum. Please do not post the same question to multiple forums. This is known as a cross-post and is against the sites rules.

In the future if you want to move your thread to a more appropriate forum, click on the triangle in the top right of your initial post and ask that a moderator move it.

Thanks.

The New South Wales Police use APCO P25, which means you would need a digital scanner, such as a Uniden UBCD396XT.

Unfortunately, I believe they also use encryption, which means they can't be monitored.

The NSW Police Force uses APCO-25 w/encryption (DES-OFB with OTAR) in the Sydney and Greater Sydney Areas. The only analog channel available for listening in Sydney and other nearby areas is the analog liaison channel which can also be heard on the NSWGRN Talkgroup ESO10.
