• 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:

Security is different than digital. P25, DMR, NXDN, etc. are digital modes, all of which can be monitored with a digital scanner or SDR dongle. Encryption can be added to any signal (even analog) to make it unusable by any scanner.

You should be able to hear EMS dispatch, some OPP repeaters, Techumseh fire, Essex, Kingsville, Leaminton fire dept.
You won't hear border patrol or security companies.

most , if not all , security companies , taxi & towing etc have moved to DMR digital systems ,..You can hear Windsor Airport , Marine ,..& MilAir traffic some uhf business band activity ,.frs ...Without either a DMR radio or Digital Scanner ,...there isnt too much ,..& even then ,..alot of services use encryption , so unless you are after something of interest that is not encrypted yet ,..there isnt a whole lot ,..a digital scanner will get you fire & opp, but honestly they are not very exciting around here ,..for the cost of the radio
