• 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 have an update regarding the Regina Phase 2 update. I decided to try to load this new system into my GRE PSR 500 scanner. I am able to hear all the EMS and Fire transmissions again on the phase 2 system that I lost on the city's old Motorola system. I thought that the GRE PSR 500 was not compatible with the Phase 2 system but it's working fine.

The Pro-106 is also able to hear EMS and Fire on the new Phase 2 system.

My understanding is it's a Phase 2 capable system currently operating as Phase 1.
On the old Motorola system now I can only hear the dispatch channels for EMS and with the Phase 2 system I can hear everything with EMS. If you are correct this will only work until they start operating on the phase 2 system full exclusively.

Maybe the EMS / FIRE radios are only capable of Phase 1 P25 system operation ? You could run the Pro96com program on the control channel and get us some data on this system ?
Thank for the information.
