    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:

Has Newton Massachusetts PD gone digital??? It seems that Newton PD has gone quiet on my scanner and I was wondering if they have gone digital. The frequency I have programmed is 470.83750...Does anyone know if this has changed?

I asked the same thing a while ago. They are on the "back up" fq 470.3875
They do flip back and forth but seem now to be on 3875 for som reason.
Have dont been able to find out why the change. Pulg in the 470.3875 and you will hear them.

My old neighborhood. I lived in Newton 10 years ago. Didn't own a scanner at that time.

Do they have only one frequency? No trunking?

As of today they are back on their main channel (8375). Birdie told me that someone screwed something up and killed the freq for a while. Guess it is fixed now.
