• 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:

Agreed. The Pro-106 does NOT receive P25 Phase 2. MARCS-IP is not using Phase 2 YET, so it will work fine to hear Hocking County, and all the rest of the state..It may be some time before it is upgraded to Phase 2. I use the Pro-106 to listen every day.

And there's something about spending 500 on a scanner that's a bit ridiculous

Get a pair of rtl sdr dongles and have at it. $50 or less and you are there.
