• 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:

Hello all,

I have noticed that in the Miami Dade EDACS system there is only 1 control channel for ALL the sites. Does this mean that if I program only that control channel into the scanner I should receive communications from all the talkgroups?

No. In an EDACS system like Miami-Dade, you have to program all of the frequencies in the Logical Channel Number (LCN) order. Those are the numbers you see within each site numbering 1-xx (depending on how many there are). For example site 2, public safety has 20 LCN freqs. Site 3 everglades has only 5. You do not have to program every site in, but I would do so in order to cover the whole area.

You might also be interested to know that sometime in the future Miami-Dade is planning on updating their radios to P25 digital. Here is a link to read about it.
