• 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 haven't logged any activity from any of the fire dispatch talkgroups for nearly two days now. I'm using the Sentinel provided information for the NWCD Simulcast system (Site 149 I believe) that has worked fine in the past. Running a 536HP so any potential Phase II issues should not be the problem. Crossing my fingers that they have not added any additional encryption.

Anyone else seeing similar or have an explanation as to what's going on? Or is it just me?

Heard some fire calls out of Schaumburg yesterday afternoon and this morning (on dispatch 2753 and fireground 2766), and currently listening to the weekly test of the station alerting system. So, yeah, there's activity.

Appreciate your feedback. Knowing that you are receiving fine, I did a full overwrite of the favorite lists and database on the 536HP and I'm back in business. I did recently apply the DMR firmware upgrade on the scanner, but besides that I don't recall making any other changes. Strange....thanks again.
