• 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:

j - I think you misread the question. He is asking for scanner advice, not live feeds.

umm,
what advise are you seeking,
question is very open ended.
many monitor the PFD,what
can be heard anyway..
Was wondering what was needed as far as a specific scanner model and also what can be heard. Could I use that same scanner for Mont. County as well ? I was looking at the pro-106 from the Shack but if it won't receive Philly and Mont Co. I was going to pass on it.
Thanks

Pro-106 working on Philly & Mont.Co. system.

The pro-106 will work fine on both systems. Philly is all digital and Mont. Co. is mixed mode.( Both digital & analog). Both use a 3600 baud control channel.

So Far Away....
any digital trunking scanner will RX the philly TRS,
police district to district is open to monitor,fire is
half n half,the fireground north and south are both
encrypted,medic and fire disptch are clear
the narco and ops on the pd side are also encrypted..

but the city of philly has a high crime rate.there is alot
to hear,domestics,gunshots,shootings,robberies,auto
thefts/and some chases if the sups dont call it off too quick..

if you live in range of the sustem its a good purchase to go 'digi..

be sure toget the philadelphia area communications guide ,
its pricleess!
