• 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:

EDACS and a conventional trunked system for the tollways. STARCOM isn't happening in Chicago for the short time future.

The State Police uses an EDACS system for all ISP operations in Cook County except the tollroads. Other state agencies in Cook County also use the EDACS system.

The tollway authority has a separate non-trunked 800 MHz. system with 4 Zones, 2 each for police and maintenance.

See http://www.carmachicago.com/profiles.html and download the IL State Radio and the District 15 profiles for more information.
