• 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 listen to a pro 106 and last evening I overheard dispatch talking about taking system down three hours for an upgrade. I think the number 700 was referenced. This morning, nothing is coming across scanner. I cleared programming and updated frequencies with no change. The trunked sytem on RR show they have been updated in the last 24 hrs and 7 days. I'm not very tech savvy other than the on/off switch and am wondering if the scanner itself may need some sort of software update and how that is done.

Thanks for any info

It would be a whole lot of help to know where you are (county/state is fine) and what system you were listening to before the 'switch'. It may be that you simply need to reprogram, but let's get those 2 pieces of information first

The upgrade you heard mentioned was the switch from the old SAFE-T(Motorola) system to the new SAFE-T(P-25) system. You'll need to program the new P-25 system in.

Hope this helps,
