• 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:

I'm trying to understand where keeping the existing EDACS system fits into this plan. Maybe that's what the FD is now using? Interesting reading in any event.

The EDACS system will be turned off when the new system is up. This RFP will start with 6 sites and then phase in 6-7 more sites over the next 4 years.

At least there's a lengthy timeframe for all of this so Uniden and friends will have time to build and sell us those shiny new P25 Phase II TDMA scanners...
