• 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:

London Public Safety - Unidentified talk group

On my homepatrol, I have enabled discover talkgroup ID's, and it has come up with a few unknown TG ID's, most of them I assume are police encrypted frequencies because it doesn't hold that long at all. However, today it found a TG ID where I could actually hear decoded voice, in the clear. Its not in the database, but I have to assume its a police talkgroup just because the 200's are in the police section of the DB. The TG is 206. Anyone have any ideas?

PS to reiterate, I said decoded, NOT decrypted. It appears this talk group is not encrypted, as obviously the HP1 can't recieve encrypted transmissions, and for the most part, LPS is 100% 24/7 encrypted except for their fleet, and maintenance/custodial channels
