• 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:

All is quiet in scannerland on the old Motorola Naperville and Aurora trunked systems for the most part. Couple of keyups and a fire department looking for a radio check.

As of last night NFD was still on the old system. They said that at shift change in the morning they were doing the changeover.

This is why I never set up a feed to monitor Naperville PD/FD/etc. I knew the day was not far off when my feed would become obsolete.

"The better coverage is really our main concern," Bell said. "But what we'll have is an encrypted channel that can't be scanned."

The can of worms is open, grab your forks and dig in!

"I've heard from incidents in the past that fiber optic rings can and do get severed. How vulnerable is the city now to people doing simple digging/excavating without really paying too much attention to things already in the ground?"

Ah, he beat me to it.

They do have contingencies. For example, if Aurora goes down then they can use Naperville's system and vice-versa.

I believe there is also microwave backup.

Is there no hope to scan these channels without an encryption key? How long until everyone is doing this and radio scanning is obsolete?
