• 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:

Looks like in a few more months the people who listen to several Wisconsin county's 800mhz systems will be looking for a new scanner unless you have a new uniden scanner or a newer radioshack scanner which will just need a firmware upgrade. I know the city of Waukesha just put in an order to get brand new radio's and what I have herd is that Waukesha County should be rebanded by October. I hope the scanner manufactures like Uniden get there firmware out before they get rebanded. We lucked out and not becoming the first system to get rebanded like one system in Alabama and another one in California.

We have known rebanding is coming for a long time. After it happens, we can scan the system as conventional frequencies with the control channel locked out.

WE just have to wait for GRE and Uniden to get the firmware updates out for the updateable scanners.

Uniden has a firmware update coming this April and don't know what this will include. We will see what happens.

I am waiting until it's actually confirmed with no if and's or but's and I hear xxx county is rebanding next week before I buy anyhthing new.
Later on in the year seems to be the time Uniden comes out with new models.

My Waukesha County feed might be history when they reband.
