• 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:

oh, not happy with clearwater edacs range at all. those guys were out of range at ulmerton/i-275 while chasing a jerk who rammed a c-water cruiser. I pick up clearwater fine on a scanner. the copter kept everyone informed on LE-1 and rebroadcast was timely on different systems and jurisdictions, but the c-water cruisers were out of luck communications wise, it seemed yesterday. maybe c-water needs to consolidate onto the new pinellas p-25 system or put an antenna over hear or get better radios. i thought they had comm ability all over the county and into hillsborough, but maybe not. of course, i also want hillsborough edacs broadcast on the new p25 system so they can hear each other even if they can't communicate cruiser to cruiser accross jurisdications.

Your points are legitimate, no doubt. The range on Clearwater EDACS has always sucked. A simple programming of conventional 800 MHz mutual aid repeaters (which do exist and are hardly used) would solve these problems.
