• 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.

Guys,

I received a submission today telling me that the FD is not encrypted on the borough system.

Can anyone local confirm that? I'm not concerned how they appear on the county 700 system, just the borough at this point.

Thanks...

I've observed that the Dispatch TG is in the clear; I'll run Unitrunker for a few days to verify what's going on...

Thanks.

The person apparently has access to the consoles, and claims the fire TG's do not have the 'key lock' symbol on them like the PD ones do...

I have also heard all operations in the clear on the fire dispatch channel. I wasn't sure how to bring this up without reopening the of worms that the old thread had opened.

It's not the dispatch channel at all, the person that made the submittal claimed that none of the fire talk groups were encrypted.

That's why I know it's going to take a while to confirm, because how often do they get activity that makes them go off on their tac channels?

Again, we know the dispatch is in the clear. I was specifically asking about the fireground channels.

I was contacted privately to confirm that they still very much are, so I restored the DB to the previous listing.

I never said dispatch, I said I have been listening to them since we changed to the County TRS. They dispatch and operate on the same TG. They do have other TG to use if they have multiple call or other non emergency ops but those were not E either.
