• 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:

Edited because I got yelled at

Heard talk of Heroin, Cocaine, etc...so I can only assume this is a Narcotics TGID, but just wanted to double-check and see if anyone knew for sure. It's not listed in the DB.

We do not list those TG's in the dB for the safety of those on the operations. The fact that you were able to hear it is a testament to the fact that sensitive groups have not been posted for all to see. Once that happens they WILL be back to full time encryption.

I've heard a couple today...

ID 343, 439, and 664.

439 I'm hearing 19th district activity on.

These also seem odd as they are not in the normal sequence as most of the other PD TGID's.

If the operators are so concerned about their safety, they shouldn't be using clear, analong, unencrypted transmissions. It doesn't matter if the ID is listed on a database or not. It was picked up by my scanner. The fact that this ID didn't have a name tag on it didn't change the transmission any. They were clear and concise in their transmission. What difference does it make if I can hear them with an alpha tag or without one? It can still be heard. If it were a different frequency, maybe I wouldn't be so uptight about it, but they are on the same system as anyone else, so all the frequencies are already listed.

ok...I'm off my soapbox now.

Status bits, perhaps?
