• 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:

Sorry I'm a complete noob. What's p25 conventional?
Conventional P25 is in short, a non-trunked(if you don't know what trunking is, read about it here: Trunked radio system - Wikipedia) P25(APCO-25 or Project 25, you can read more about P25 here: Project 25 - Wikipedia), which is a digital mode commonly used among law enforcement.


Would a Home Patrol 1 scanner work?
Do you want to just scan Augusta? Or do you also want to scan Maine State Police?
