• 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:

Has been awhile since I have used a scanner and my ole Bearcat is history.
Looking at a new scanner and see that NXDN and TDMA are needed but also seem to see threads stating that much of Sevier county is now encrypted.
So, am I out of luck in listening to police, fire, park service etc?

Thanks and Happy New Year

You can monitor Pigeon Forge Police, they are P25 and have their own system.
The Park Service is P25 so you can monitor them also.
As for the NXDN trunk system, it's encrypted so no use listening to that.

I just want to add that with all of the talk of NXDN being encrypted I have the Whistler TRX-2 and I am receiving Police dispatch out of Sevierville. 460.075000 tone mode RAN:44tg:* Some of you might be aware that whistler has updated to NDXN Trx-1 and Trx-2.they are have some issues but at least they are braking ice I think. I do hear police dispatch in NXDN

NXDN Seviervile

Thanks for the info, Ron.
As a new TRX-2 owner, this gives me a new 'opportunity' to see if my programming skills is any good.

Thanks
Doug

The conventional NexEDGE systems are not fully encrypted. The Land Air Communications built and run NexEDGE NXDN TRS systems are indeed fully encrypted, including now, even the business users in Knox, as well as Sevier Counties. It will be this way until the next election cycle, someone dies due to lack of comms, or an higher LEA does investigations into the less than up front dealings with the radio systems. (Legal Issues are what are fixing Knox County Comms, and in TN thats what it usually takes to fix anything.)
