• 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:

Nice thing about MJ, our FD will not encrypt unless the province forces them too. as for our PD, they have been encrypted for several years now, and even on their brand new (iden or tdmax2 system - have yet to determine which) they went full encryption on all channels. A sad state when Fire, EMS and PD all encrypt, although understandable to a degree for EMS and some PD Ops.

It’s likely a P25 phase 2. iDEN is long, lone gone and Motorola stopped selling X2 TDMA once the phase 2 standard was approved.

From MJPS Proposal "The new radiocommunication system is designed minimally for the next fifteen (15) years. It is intended for Police Service. It must be digital type, NXDN FDMA or DMR TDMA technology (multi-site if applicable) in TRUNKED mode and support AES-256 type encryption "

That eliminates Motorola. Odd they want NXDN or DMR rather than go with P25.

When MJPS first went digital they offered the local paper one of the portables at cost. Needless to say the local paper couldn't justify the cost.
