• 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:

Is that another EDACS system I hear going away?

Harris wins - it remains to be seen if that means P25 or BrokenSky. Hopefully the former.

Link broken. I went to city.peterborough.on.ca and found agenda info from the Committee of the Whole which said no more than "Recommend awarding of the winning bid for the RFP for the Peterborough Lakeside Police Service radio system" or similar.

I would expect for a smaller agency like that it would be a P25 system of some flavour.

Did anyone catch the part about the possibility of Peterborough EMS, MNR, and OPP
using the system? <scratches head>.

I read that as they will actually have some spare radios now that could be used by outside agencies if needed. JFO operations and such perhaps. Beyond that it doesn't make much sense...
