• 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'm trying to help out a friend who just bought a new scanner "Uniden HomePatrol-2 Phase-2 Digital Scanner with Pre-Programmed Database"

This scanner has all of the frequencies in the database but we don't get Malden PD. I'm going to look at it myself tomorrow, just figured I see if someone could point me in the proper direction.

Were getting the Malden Fire however were not able to hear the Police.

I'm told they went to a digital frequency

Fire = 482.01250 - This works

Police = 470.76250 - Is this the correct

Thanks Bill

Malden was testing P25 on 470.76250 as recently as October but I don't know if they made a permanent switch
I would program the frequency twice, once as analog with the existing analog PL of 131.8 and the second time as I would guess you have it from the database as digital with a NAC of 263.

They have switched to full time P25, as part of the transition radios were programmed with Analog and Digital. Since the system is mixed mode;ocassionally you will hear full conversation in analog, because someone is on the wrong channel. Its all seamless. I put the system in
