• 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:

It looks like NCPD stopped simulcasting their new 500Mhz P25 system on their old UHF channels.

PRO96COM still shows activity on their system, but my conventional radio is completely silent.

I just went through my own personal archives and it seems that NCPD stopped simulcasting at 0700hrs this morning.

Yikes, I've only heard encrypted comms on the 500Mhz channels...I guess that is the end of monitoring Nassau County. Scary trend - I hope our radios don't become useless antiques in a few years.

On my ride home tonight, all precinct and highway UHF channels were active and in the clear [of course].
The TRS also displayed active talk groups and UIDs. As of now they haven't pulled the trigger, yet!

Whew, me too - have been hearing the old 47x.xxx analog channels today. Hopefully not a short reprieve from the eventual encrypted channels.

There might be a back door way to monitor NCPD on a limited bases when they turn off the legacy system. For a short time the 1st & 7th pct was simulcast on NYC's Mutual Aid ch1 [formally known as City Wide I/O] this past Monday. This might be the way NYPD gets to talk direct with any NCPD channel/talk group. Not to happen very often for sure, but somthing to remember.
