• 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:

Hey Jake! Hope all is well :)
As has been discussed in the past Progress Energy uses
an Opensky system which can not be monitored by commercially
available scanners. So you are not going to be able to monitor them.
Sorry!

Will not be able to monitor it. It's Opensky which is a 4 slot TDMA system and there are no scanners that will work with it.

Progress Energy is moving over slowly but surely going to Open Sky, which we all know is what Duke Energy is using now. It may be a while before anyone sees the change over to Open Sky in an area where Progress provided service as the primary utility company. They will continue to use their old Motorola system(s) until Duke can get the Open Sky system expanded to those areas.

Beside Duke/Progress Energy, other companies that contract for Duke and need radios to communicate with Dispatch in Charlotte at the Little Rock Operations center include Pike, Utility, Williams, etc.

Duke is moving fairly fast to consolidate everything into Open Sky but there isn't an exact time frame. Hope this helps out !!
