• 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:

Just curious if anyone successfully monitors Ocean County 700 MHz P25 using one of Uniden’s older phase II capable scanners? (i.e. 436hp, 325p2)
Or is LSM distortion so bad that it’s absolutely necessary use a SDS100/200 or Unication G4/5?

Your reception will vary depending on location with the 436 or 325P2. Some spots it will be good and others not so good. If you're planning on a stationary installation you can experiment with antenna placement until you get the reception acceptable. This doesn't always work but it's really all you can do. Mobile or just walking around with a portable will be problematic for sure. I cannot comment on the SDS100/200 as I do not own one. BTW this is my experience with the Camden and Gloucester County systems. I'm out of range of Ocean Co.
