• 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:

Visiting Fernandina Beach and brought my SDS100. Using Zip code I’m not picking up much at all on entire county systems. I know the Sheriffs office is silent but are fire/rescue too? I did hear a little on a lifeguard channel.

I am not sure how the SDS100 is a brick if it does not monitor Fernandina Beach PD or Nassau County Sheriff since they are encrypted.
It appears to work for Fire/Rescue but the scanner cannot control listening if they are not that busy.

Yes it’s useless, or any scanner for that matter here. EMS and Fire has hardly any traffic so I figured they are now ENC or super slow. I’ve heard a couple calls on fire channel but if that’s all I could listen to here I’d take up kite flying.
