• 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:

Do u have away to get the new equipment and keys to keep u online or will u be pulled off the air alone with the scanner community. I listen to your online feed when I want to listen to another county ect.

Asking someone about encryption keys on this forum is HIGHLY frowned upon. Also, unless he is an authorized user of the system, he would have no way of obtaining that information anyway. If they decide to use encryption, sorry, but you're outta luck, end of story.

System Keys don't work in scanners.

I'm pretty sure, even if you had access to a system encryption key legitimately, and used it to broadcast said encrypted traffic on the internet, it would at very least be frowned upon by the AHJ, if not some sort of infraction of federal law.

It is illegal to rebroadcast encrypted radio traffic, so even if he had the key and a scanner that could decode AES, or whatever encryption algorithm they are using, existed, there would be no way for him to do what you are asking him to do without committing a crime.

Well i'l put it like this if the county's police channels are encrypted then it won't be on the Broadcastify site, And as far as the Fire and EMS goe's it should not be encrypted at all except maybe their side channels like portable to portable. As for programing i will be following the FCC and RR and Broadcastify TOS and all guidelines. THX Jerry K.

yea I am loving the new system here to the only thing I wish was to only hear the west side of the system or east and not both. is there a way with the 436hp to hear just the east side talk groups and not west and east at the same time?
