• 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 new channel 2 is Encrypted 24/7
Channel 1 is staying in the clear for now but they can go anytime
DPW live on digital.
Fire & Ems should be switching over in the next few weeks.

As a reminder guys, information from other websites is not allowed per database policy (we like to play nice in the sandbox with other websites).

If you use that information, and personally verify the use and information, that's good enough for me.

We cannot cut and paste information and call it our own. Other sites get a little upset over that (it happens).

Scan New England Wiki! and it look like public works 451.825 will be going DMR COLOR CODE 5 COME UP
Exactly why it needs to be verified.........Rocky Hill DPW just turned on their brand new simulcast P25 Digital system a week ago. I doubt they will be going DMR any time soon

NAC is 420 if you want to listen to it

I updated the DB yesterday with accurate information.

This is why we do not take information from other sites or unverified information.

Things to slip thru the cracks, but at least I try to stop some of it.

Hi guys,

I live in the area and have been researching radios. Would the Uniden BCD325P2 have the ability to listen to RHPD with the new changes? Is it overkill for basic listening? I have done some research and understand they're now digital p25 unencrypted. Wanted to check here because it sounds like there is much more experience here compared to my basic knowledge.

Thanks!

The BCD325P2 is an excellent future-proof choice with great reviews!

As more agencies upgrade, you'll need a Phase ii scanner to hear them.

Rocky Hill and Cromwell are part of Task Force 51. I think it is used more then any of the others. They can communicate on that channel or go to the Intercity channels. Wethersfield with their digital network is also part of that Task Force and they have no issues communicating with the other member towns.

Maybe you are hearing Trumbull High Schools digital repeater, Or Ridgefields school systems digital repeater.
Taxi cabs out of Nassau county maybe (DMR) Also a few DMR repeaters in Westchester county and NYC that are loud up here
