• 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:

I am going to be admitted into the HUP for 7 days for major surgery. I have a PRO 668 to bring with me to listen to Philly's P25 phase 2 system. Can anyone confirm that the hospital has moved to DMR and if they're encrypted? I would consider purchasing a scanner that can do DMR and is a handheld for my stay.

If you look it up in the database, it looks like the only thing on DMR is the University police, and they are encrypted. Says the university is in the process of switching to DMR, but most users are still on conventional analog FM, including medical response teams. Nothing specific is noted for the hospital itself.

Good luck on your surgery. Wish I would have thought of this a year or so ago for mine.

HUP Security uses Moto turbo in the 450 Mhz range. That notwithstanding, keep in mind this is an urban environment. As a retired HUP employee, I would NOT bring anything like that to the hospital. Electronics have a way of "walking". You will undoubtedly have sedation and or pain control meds that will make you groggy. Seven days in a hospital seems a long time, but I can't emphasize enough the chance of loosing that radio. I hope your surgery goes well. If I can answer any questions for you about HUP, please contact me by PM.

I realize after looking at the database that the police are DMR encrypted. I was hoping just to monitor the hospital day to day operations as I am there for a week. I pulled every license for the hospital into a spreadsheet and will just program all the channels into a cheap radio. I have a PRO 649 I paid $30 for and it it "walks" I won't be heartbroken.

So far what insignia programmed everything you guys told me that isnt DMR and programmed it into a bank. I also put every frequency licenses to HUP or CHOP into another bank and see what becomes of that.
