• 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:

the city of mobile plans on switching over to the edacs system by the end of the year or the first of next year, they are waiting on the rebanding to take place on the current motorola system, some of the freq's on the edacs system will be rebanded also the bad news is when the city does switch over to edacs they will be using provoice so you will not be able to scan them any longer however as far as i know all the county agency's will still be analog. the new towers shown on the database will be a simulcast system with the springhill tower, also the plan is to add more freq's to the wilmer & salco towers and in the near future they plan on adding a tower at the mobile co/washington co line near the new steel mill i will keep everyone updated as i get more info

Well you know this just sucks... I obtained a BCD996 a few weeks ago and this morning have finally gotten the thing set up the way I want it with the county and city systems. Now to learn that the the city is going to a mode that I won't be able to listen too. That really sucks...

My dad was planning on buying a 396t in the next couple of weeks; guess I'll have to break the news to him before he does. He may want to hold onto his money for another type of radio. Well... Isn't this just a fine mess...
