• 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:

Over the past few days I've noticed my scanner was unusually "quiet". Tonite while talking about it with some co-workers, they mentioned the same the same observation. For some reason we are unable to hear anything that Baytown broadcasts now. Someone commented that they heard that Baytown had "gone digital". Is this the case and if so what do we need to do to start receiving Baytown PD, Fire/EMS etc? We all agree that there is bound to be something happening in "crime free" Baytown.

I'll leave it to someone much closer to your area to confirm, but have noticed that a number of new talkgroups for Baytown have been recently added or updated on the digital TxWARN P25 system.

Thanx for the info. I still don't understand all I know about these trunked systems. Does this mean that my new Pro-18 is now a very expensive paperweight???
