• 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:

Or just simply Oakland PD with the Te mode, since "Ch 2" can't be monitored anyway...KISS! ;)

Eatontown has begun it's migration over. DPW has already made the move. I don't know when the other departments (PD, FD, EMS, OEM) are planning on making the switch.

So far guys, on Oakland....

The lowband multicast has been on and off over the past few days.

Listening currently(16:00hrs) only 700 is active.

I am locked on both lowband and 700.

Not sure if there’s problems or what.

And on 700 there has been no “E” so it should be coming through on lowband unless there’s a problem

Update: 16:22 now I’m hearing E and no lowband.

Perhaps there was a change.

I’ll keep listening through the night and I’ll advise


Ok one more update. Based on the ids, 242059(E), and the others, this is dispatch console and the units running tests.

242058 is the dispatch console(clear).

At this point my assumption is testing.

Back on Thursday I caught TG 4917 active with a short encrypted keyup.
The RID was 242041 which is an Oakland ID.
I don't want to submit to the DB yet because one keyup is not very much to go on...

And to be clear this is not their Ch2 the E right? From what I’ve seen, they can/do run E on the same TG as dispatch.

So a possible Tac channel?

I heard a unit ask another unit to switch to channel 2 a few weeks back, which resulted in the traffic on TG 4915 becoming all encrypted between the same exact two RIDs which were previously being used in the clear.

Yup, there are several potential uses, but tac is one of them.
