• 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 seem to remember reading somewhere that the JFD was going to encrypt their radio system. Has this happened yet? I'll be in Jacksonville the end of the month and was wondering if I should even bother taking my scanner. Also, do they still simulcast on 460.575? Thanks.

They have not encrypted yet and they still simulcast as far as I know.

I think the Jacksonville FD decision to encrypt their radio traffic is another "overeaction" to the HIPPA law. What I understand is that the federal law does not require fire/ ems to encrypt their radio traffic. In most cases the general rule is that the amubalances should not air certain things abouth the patient(name, socieal security number). The Jacksonvillle media should stop sitting around and take legal action against the fire and sheriff department. What if a major incident occurs in Jackosnville and the public and media are not informed until a couple of hours or even days after it occurs. People will be asking "Why were we not informed about this just after it happened?"

Well, if they are basing the decision to encrypt on HIPPA Concerns, that would mean every unit on JFRD that is not responsible for the Patient care of the call or on the call should not be able to listen to the same transmissions. The units not assigned to the call are no different than the everyday citizen.

HIPPA should be applied ONLY to Hospital Communications (Med Report) imo...

I think you can still get St. Johns County F/R and SO . I guess it depends on where you are located in Duval.
