• 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:

Not only did they drop the MPT-1327 format CBSA swapped out the Tait (3000's) radio's for Hytera radio's (PD 682's) for most normal ops comms are still simplex on 408 mhz. Yes it's true Canadian Government using Chinese made radio's now...whats next Chinese police cars and fighter jets?

It is sad. The big issue being Moto and Harris etc have priced themselves out of the market and offer only overtly complex solutions to a relatively simple customer need. CBSA only really needed encrypted simplex or repeater preferably with a compatible channel or link system to the US side. Most of the crossings could even use the same freq or if needed a ch1 ch2 approach.
