• 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:

The DB only lists systems that are using NXDN digital in the mode columb as being NEXEDGE. However, I know for a fact that certain systems are Icom based systems. The Icom IDAS and Kenwood NEXEDGE do not use the same trunking format, and will not work together, except in 6.25 CAI only. This could confuse someone who may purchase a Kenwood radio, in hopes to program it to receive only their local NXDN trunked system, only to find out later its an Icom system, and they bought the wrong radio.
Can we submit a system as being IDAS or NEXEDGE, and have that reflected in the DB?
