• 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:

I just heard Willow Park PD unit 404 on the Hudson Oaks TG! Anyone out that way know if this is permanent. Have they moved off their analog 155.58 freq? Wondering about the fire frequency also.

thanks...

Thank you...I go to Lake Weatherford every now and then and have a Homepatrol 1 out there. It was news to me.
Was going to put an old analog scanner out there just for Willow Park, but guess not now!!!

Willow Park PD moved to be dispatched by the SO. The fire department is being dispatched by Parker County Fire Alarm. The Aledo unit you are hearing, is a Parker County SO Deputy that is assigned to work Aledo. There is a possibility of Springtown PD moving to the P25 system as well, depending on funding for new radios.

Parker County SO

I have not ben able to hear Parker County SO dispatch on Parker County P25 system. Have they encrypted the main channel?. Also, Azle PD needs to switch to a radio system that works. Worst I've heard in awhile and I live there.

They were not encrypted the last time I passed through there, maybe 3 weeks ago. Probably will be by that way in the next week or two, and will check then.

Hearing them right now on Weatherford VHF site and Annetta site from SW Fort Worth - no encryption.

Don't if it is related or not but Parker County, the last few
days, has had major CAD problems. I don't know if it is
new or some kind if upgrade, but they have not been
able to do much on their computers. One dispatcher said
they were doing everything by pen and paper.

Hope that helps
