• 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:

No, you will have to get a digital scanner to monitor OSP.

Here is what is currently available to monitor OSP:


Radio Shack:

Pro-96 Handheld
Pro-2096 Desktop/Mobile

Uniden:

BCD-396T Handheld
BCD-996T Desktop/Mobile

You can find out more about their features on the Wiki.

I entered the MARCS frequencies in my scanner anyway to see what would happen and I got something like this http://www.radioreference.com/digital/dig/edacs-norm.wav and I also read that you will get that if the areas using PROVOICE. Is Ohio using PROVOICE? Did I just get that sound because my scanner is analog? I am thinking about buying a
RS Pro- 96. I read that no scanner can monitor PROVOICE.

No, MARCS is not Provoice. You are hearing Motorola data NOT EDACS.

You need to go here and read up on how Trunking works.
Ohio MARCS is a Motorola system. I believe the only Provoice system in
Ohio is the City of Springfield.

Thanks, I am still new at scanning and the PROVOICE had me worried there for a moment.

So the Pro95 does not, but the Pro96 does. So will the Pro97 even though it's not on the list and it's not a digital scanner?

Receive MARCS? NO, it will not!
Only those scanners listed in in reply#9
will receive State of Ohio MARCS.

MARCS is currently an analog system utilizing digital voice,
only a digital capable scanner will receive it. You could program
it into a Pro-97 and watch the talkgroups pop up, but you will not
hear any of the transmissions.
