• 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:

Just thought I would let everyone know that Lavergne police and FD are in the process of switching over to piggyback off of Metro's 800 system. Not idea of frequencies or specifics yet, but they are in the process of getting the 800 mhz radios installed.

I am not really sure unless it is that Metro has more room on their system. They are leaving their UHF system in place as a back up. No word yet on if they are going to have a simulcast of their 800 on the UHF.

I saw one of their unmarked cars on the square in M'Boro this week, and it had the UHF and the "800" black "can type" antennas on the roof. I thought at the time this might be for a computer, but probably was for the Metro radio.

I hope their talkgroups pop up on TRS System A rather then B. I had thought most of Metro PD stuff finally transitioned over to A but the last couple days i've heard some cars using TG's on System B still.

Negative on the simulcast, Box 100 will have use of the UHF frequencies.

I heard Metro is not only 800 MHz but DIGITAL 800? If this is correct, I will not be able to hear La Vergne after they make the switch. At least until I get a digital scanner.
