• 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:

Is there a time line yet as to when we can expect to see TFS do a full move to the Toronto P25 system?

I ask as it is in the 700MHz and if I were to buy an XTS 2500 for 800MHz I believe the new 700MHz P25 system would be out of band.

There's a very small handful of TFS apparatus who are now P25 but most are still analog.

Toronto EMS is now all P25 and many of the channels are gone from the analog system (including the automated dispatcher on ICALL).

P25 EMS

Million Dollar question? Are they encrypted?

Thanks for the replies guys, guess its time to start shopping for Ph II
So far, the only use of Phase II have been the GO Transit talkgroups. I think Toronto City Security was also running it on the TPS system however they also ran encryption with P25 PII.
