    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:

Could someone explain to me what P25 is vs UHF. If I program my radio to a P25 frequency at 453.4625 will I be able to hear it? Do you need a special radio?

Thanks

P25 is shorthand for APCO Project 25. In keeping it simple, P25 is a modulation method, like AM or FM.

UHF defines a frequency range, like VHF, SHF, VLF, etc...
