• 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:

San Antonio?

Will this scanner (BCD536HP) help us in San Antonio with SAPD and SAFD? I noticed I'm hearing them on the live audio link via the internet, but I don't know what was necessary to make that happen.

The live audio feed is using a speech decoder software through a computer and a provoice digital radio. No scanner can pick up provoice alone.

Depends on if you want to listen to anything else..LCRA P25 is very active with towns in the Live Oak area and JISD PD. Of course the non provoice comms on the San Antonio/Bexar County system, Bexar County Fire Alarm comms and interop stuff etc.... Federal non encrytped stuff and the The Military bases UHF P25 system. If SAPD/FD is all you care to listen to then I would wait and see what P25 system the city will upgrade to in the future.
