• 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:

The old system is still active for now, but PD/FD and other agencies have transitioned to the new system. I would guess sometime in the near future the old system will go down.

I work for one of the agencies on this system and was actively involved in the template assembly for our department radios. I just looked back in my email to confirm, Portland BTS sent out an alert to all agencies (on Mar 29) that the analog system would be “turned off and decommissioned” on April 2nd, 2018.

Prior to that we had identical analog and digital banks so we could switch between the old system and the new. With the new template flash we no longer have access to the old analog talkgroups and our old analog radios ceased to function.

Our Clackamas, Washington Co. and OSP channel banks are still analog along with lots of interop channels.

With that being said, I’m pretty sure the analog system is gone. Not sure what you’re picking up... Could you be hearing WC or Clackamas? Also,I just checked, my scanner is picking up everything on the BOEC P25 system from the West Simulcast without any issue.

Wrong state bud. This Portland System is in Maine.

I was listening to Portland PD on my xts5000 and they had a SIGNAL 1000 (Emergency Radio Silence).The dispatcher told all officers to switch to 1 and.I did not hear any traffic until it cleared.The last time they had a signal 1000 they switched to 2(law tac 2)and.I heard all the back traffic.Does anyone know if Portland PD has any other p25 talkgroups they have added to the new system?
