• 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:

For some reason, Hollywood Police and Fire talkgroups come across with control channel noise instead of voice. All the other City of Hollywood talkgroups come in fine (Public Works, Parking Enforcement, etc.) I have all Broward Co. Motorola Type II SmartZone frequencies programed into one bank (Bank 3) on my RadioShack Pro 97 scanner in order as listed on this website from site 1 to site 5. All the other sites (BSO Primary, Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Plantation) give me no trouble whatsoever. Hollywood is a P.I.T.A.

Also, in another bank (Bank 9), Palm Beach Co. Motorola Type II SmartZone, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach Police talkgroups do the same thing. All I hear is control channel clamor when somthing is being transmitted.

Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.

Frustrated in S. Florida,
Ted

On the Broward County SmartZone system, only Hollywood PD and FD are digital. All other users are analog, with the exception of a few digital specialized groups, such as internal affairs, and a few surveillance and undercover groups.
