• 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:

#1: This subject is very taboo around here, so be careful.

#2: Why would one need this information for "their own" department?

Well the reason I got the program to decode my pager was plain and simple. My squad issued pager comes in like crap when in the base. No matter where I locate my pager/base in my room, the reception sucks. So I decided to get the information from the pager so I could put it in my scanner which can decode it. My scanner recieves my dispatch much better then my pager. That is my reason for decoding it. Yes I have squad issued equipment, but I have poor reception. Another reason I could see is if you wanted to upgrade your pager because your squad won't, you get your own new pager and need the info for it. I don't understand what the big uproar is if there are scanners made to RECIEVE the tone outs. Whats the big deal. Thats my feeling on it.

As it has been said in the past, PL Tones can be more dangerous than pager encoding tones, IMO.
Both are bad. With that being said, I have yet to hear a news report where someone was maliciously jamming public safety frequencies or even toneing out a fire co. or EMS squad with their radio.

If you're dumb enough to do something like that you deserve everything you have coming to you if you get caught. And usually they do get caught.

I think for the most part we have a good bunch of people across the state, and there are always a few exceptions. Like anything in life, if someone wants something bad enough they'll get it.

Personally, I wouldn't waste my money on a pager, just because of bad reception. If you're dept. won't fix it, shame on them. They need you more than you need them.
