• 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:

I heard today that the KTA moving in with KSIS (and dropping big $$$) is changing the priority of how it is being implemented. The plan was to do northeast KS next (KC, Lawrence and Topeka up to Nebraska). Instead they will spread the system along the length of the Turnpike - impacting KC, Lawrence, Topeka and Wichita (hope those of you in Wichita who were told P-25 was on the back burner there are paying attention).

I confirmed today that Shawnee County will have 2 seperate trunking systems operating in tandem (off the same tower at I-70 & Gage). The Shawnee County 15 CH Motorola Type II system will continue to handle all city & county services (for now). The state is going to add an 8 channel P-25 digital trunked site tied in with KSIS (necessary for coverage for the KTA).

No word on if state users (e.g. highway patrol) will be required to operate on the new system (wouldn't surprise me- "We've spent all this $$ so you will use it!") and abandon their ability to communicate with local agencies (digital & analog don't mix too well). KCK, Wichita and Topeka Troopers have been operating on the county trunked systems for years.

I'll be back in Wichita on the 31st and cross-confirm that with WPD and their radio shop (if they are even aware yet). I'll post what I find out.
