• 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 am in the process of purchasing a new digital scanner and I am looking at the PSR-500. I would like to make sure that I can pick up the frequency listed below on the new digital scanner. (North Brunswick NJ) http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=1782

502.38750 505.38750 WQBC455 RM 1 Police Dispatch APCO-25
506.60000 509.60000 WQBC455 RM 2 Police Alternate APCO-25

Thanks,

James

You can't tell yourself, you would have to find out from someone who already monitors them with a digital scanner (or someone otherwise privvy to that information).

I've never received encryption on their channels, everything I've heard has been digital clear and could be properly received/decoded by the PSR-500 and PSR-600. That's not to say they don't have ability to encrypt and never do or will, but as long as they continue to use the channels the way they have been, the PSR-500 should do fine.
