• 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:

Good morning,

I will be moving into either Shelby or Tipton Counties next month, and I am wanting to get my scanner (BCD536HP with DMR upgrade) ready. I have read the other threads here and of course looked at the database. So, I was hoping someone could help answer some questions:

Tipton DMR - Any worth in programming this in - I.E, is it 100% encrypted? That's what I am guessing from the threads; a lot of talk about DSD, but nothing on DMR scanner capabilities.

Does Tipton use any of it's older FM channels? I expect the Sheriff/Police will not, but I hope at least the Fire Departments will.

I'll be grateful for any other tippers. Thanks!
