• 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:

Rutherford PD has finally worked all the kinks out of their new EF Johnson radio system and now full time 100% encrypted.

I do hear them sometimes unencrypted so you may want to leave it in there for fun.
Its ENC most of the time though.
I really thought they turned the thing off after reading an article on police shutting encryption systems off due to safety reasons but that was being too positive of thinking!

Also the Rutherford Fire and EMS repeaters went from bad to worse, Congrat's, they could have learned a lot from Kearny PD and MOD'S please if an agency gets new radio system please don't take the old information down there are plenty of agencies that use there old systems which are to numerous to mention here.

The PD is going to be 100% encrypted if they can ever get it working right, they are having many issues with the new system.

They also changed the comparator on the FD side as part of the "upgrade" and the FD is having many issues now with their repeater,
