• 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:

What talk group (s) are you noticing the problem on? Could be a simple solution like the communications center is multi selecting a conventional VHF resource and a 800 control station for dispatch. Without a console level patch in place if the field units are replying to the communications center on VHF you will hear nothing on Viper.

I noticed it on one of the state trooper talk groups as well as local sheriffs department thanking it may be a simple saving but not real sure thanks for your reply .

NCSHP is still utilizing LB albeit on a limited basis in some troops. You'll only hear one side on LB generally as it is not repeated. When selecting a LB transmitter the communications center will also select the applicable TG (s) on Viper so it's a multi cast on 800 and LB. What county are you in? That might help with knowing if they are a primary user on Viper or simply have a control station with console multi select.

We had a patrolwoman here that did not want to be heard by everyone, so she answered on LB car to station. Moved to the Mansion and, I guess at end of next week, she will get her line Sgt stripes and go back on the road, if that is still what the outgoing Guv still does for his security folks.
