    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,

First of all I want to say that I'm new to the scanner/radio world and have limited knowledge about the subject. I'v been listening to EMS/ Fire feeds online and would now like to move on to listening to Police channels.

I'm located in Ottawa, ON where it seems like the Police is using a Provoice system. I've read a couple of posts that suggest using an LPE-200 radio (with option 29?) to monitor those frequencies. First of all I'd like to know if this is legal, and then, if it is I would appreciate some help in selecting the right radio for this application and then being directed as to where I could go to have this radio programmed.

Any help would be really appreciated!
