• 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:

Hi guys,
I'm just curious if anybody knows if the Jones Co FD has moved over to the NEXEDGE system there in the county along with the LE agencies? I noticed today the live audio feed from there has gone away, so I'm wondering if it was because the fire dept went away or the guy hosting it just decided to take it down?

Thanks.

Charles, it seems that they went to NEXEDGE. It has been noted in the database here on RR. Probably why the feed was taken down.

The database mentions the police and sheriffs departments, but not fire:

"Jones County Sheriff, Jail and the Gray Police Department has switched to a NEXEDGE System."

Actually, it still lists the FD as "FM", and not "NEXEDGE".

Jones fire is currently analog, no firm decision on what they are going to do for narrowbanding. Everything from Kenwood TK2180/TK-780's to modded ham radios are in use (yeah, real safe eh?).

I've heard everything from Nexedge to DMR to joining the Macon-Bibb TRS. This ought to be interesting.
