• 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:

Well i guess it has been awhile since I have listened to Walker County. Jasper Law Dispatch is now encrypted. I still hear the cars.Anyone fill me in when all this took place? I'm out of the loop!

Maybe they're realizing that encrypting is putting lives at stake.
It takes more to decode an encrypted signal,more pieces to put together.

I remember listening to the police cars (regular p25) talking to dispatch saying repeat or 10-9, I am just happy I can still let my family living in Jasper use my older analog scanner to listen

How is encryption putting lives at stake? I'm not a fan of it as a scanner enthusiast, but there is a need for it in some circumstances. The City of Birmingham have already or will be encrypting most talkgroups on the Jeffco system-soon to be part of the AFRN system to protect the citizens we serve. As a firefighter/paramedic with the city, we save the lives. Scanner listeners don't.
