• 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:

Jefferson Co

Gardendale, AL
I’m looking at purchasing a WS-1040 to monitor Jefferson Co and Birmingham. Would this be the best route or do I need to make a larger investment and go with the TRX1? I would also like to, potentially, monitor the new AFRN...
Any help is greatly appreciated!

To be honest with you I am not familiar with Whistler scanners. The new jeffco p 25 system is not completely up and running the projeced data is June of this year. Not trying to discourage you. It could depend on your location. I would Google p 25 lsm and try to understand it. All p 25 simulcast sites suffer from this.

As for the non simulcast afrn sites any radio that will do phase 1 will work. From what I have Read the top of the line Whistler trx 2 is a good choice
