    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:

For those interested in Longwood Security, (who patrol mostly private housing developments in Boston), they're operating a DMR one frequency at 483.8125 with a color code of 1. So far TGID 1901 is the only talkgroup seen from about a month of periodic monitoring. While the only licensee in the area for that frequency is Comtronics, their unit numbers match the Longwood vehicles I've seen, and the locations that have been mentioned match known contracts. Interestingly, Harbor Point's security is on the Comtronics 900 MotoTrbo system even though Longwood has that contract.
