• 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 have lost the link to the news story I had on the subject... But the whole county is supposed to go to a radio system where they all can talk on the same channels if needed..

This is the city system and it will be encrypted so we will be unable to monitor. As the systems comes up I understand a bridge will tie the existing and new systems together so we will be able to continue to monitor. Houston County wll not be on this system at the present time. The will have portables so they can communicate with the city during special circumstances.

It is a sad shame that Dothan will encrypt.
Wayne, at this time do you know if it will be total encryption or just Public Safety?
When it happens, I will miss being able to hear Dothan when I am in th area.

All 700 MHz Freqs will be from 764 to 800 MHz. Just perform a search and you will find what you are looking for.

I'm not sure, but will ask. All city departments will eventually be on the system. Interesting that I found out that their southern lincs are tied to their old system and will be tied to the new system also. The fire department monitors dispatch on their lincs.
