• 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:

So, is this because Motorola doesn't want to service the existing system anymore? Or |Sarnia not willing to pay the asked amount?

The article doesn't clearly state whom exactly doesn't want to renew the service contract - Sarnia or Motorola?

not sure really what is going on their system is not really that old and from what i understand they are not changing base radio so i think they might just be looking for a replacement for the frontline officers but i will keep my ear open when it goes to the city council for final approval before they buy it.

Is the Police in Sarnia Encrypted or clear P25
sarnia ps is fully encrypted at this point and i don't see them being in the clear ever again

The story didn't really give many details, but I'd imagine they just want to freshen up their hardware with more current equipment. Or they could always go TRBO like the rest of the city!

That radio is just a rumour at this point, so I wouldn't hold my breath there. Also heard thru the grapevine that Sarnia Fire is not happy at all with TRBO and may be looking for something else.
