• 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 to go to a p25 phase two scanner. I believe that is what mswin is as the whole state of Miss. seems to be going to it. My current scanner will pick it up but it just barely does and I have to keep the volume wide open. Has anyone used the uniden bcd996p2 phase 2???. This is a lot of money to shell out and would like some input from others who may us this scanner. I am in Lafayette co. Mississippi. Thanks

I have the Uniden 996P2, my personal opinion in my area IL-700/800 Digital Starcom System is decodes better than my 996xt...Very good volume and easy programming.....Bought it at the "The Ham Station in Indiana, great people to do business with.....

I went with the bc536hp as it seems to cover most, if not all, of what I need. Here in Lafayette Co., they seem to be in the middle of changing over to mswin and the patch they are using causes their modulation to be very, very weak. At least at my location. Thanks for the info.

I'm in Desoto County which is swapping over to MSWIN and recently purchased a 996P2. Really happy with the purchase but was a little disappointed most of the mobiles on the county and 1 city that have swapped are running encryption. Not that familiar with your area but I did hear something about OPD and encryption on the MSWIN forum.

This is one of those times when posting in the correct forum, Mississippi state forum, would get better answers. Looking at the database would also give you an idea whats what in you county on the statewide system.
