    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:

Does anyone have any updated info on the Shell Norco system. I had it programmed at some time in the past and was able to monitor as a Motorola analog system. Recently I tried and couldn't hear anything.
I searched the FCC database and the frequencies in the RR database appear correct. I reprogrammed my scanner with another system for the same frequencies programmed as P25 thinking it may have went digital.
On either system, when I stop the scanner on a control channel my 396 doesn't show the a site number. Additionally there appear to be multiple control channels running at the same time. Sometimes a control channel will be going, then just cut out.
Did they possibly change to some unmonitorable system? Any thoughts?

Got it, thanks. Still curious what they're doing with the old 800 MHz channels, they still have some type of repeater noise on them.
