• 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:

not sure if anyone else is hearing this but last couple of days i've noticed a "beep" every few seconds when pd transmits on 460.100. what the heck is it? i know it's not an identifier as new haven has a distictive tone on there radios for that. not sure how long this has been going on either as i usually just listen, but not "really" listen.

I'm not sure why, I rarely listen to CH1 but its only on the mobile side of the transmissions. I know New Haven has been updgrading their portables. Im not sure about the head units in the cars. Maybe something with a design?

As far as upgrades go, I can tell you that as far back as February 2006, They have been carrying Motorola XTS 5000's. Maybe they're going to digital or encrypted sometime soon??? It's anyone's guess.....

they already have encryption in at least some of their radios. I mostly hear is on Channel 5 460.150 during something major. I'm not sure how many radios have it or if only certain divisions have it (narcotics etc). I heard the enc used a lot the weekend before the narcotics division got busted.
