• 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:

I live in a county here in New Mexico where EDACS ProVoice Communications & radios have been used for quite some years now. There's a big rumor that this year sometime & my county that uses & has been using the EDACS ProVoice system "will go bye bye and will be upgraded to a Motorola Phase II TDMA system" as an upgrade to replace the what is now considered "old school and being phased out EDACS ProVoice Radio Communications System".

Therefore, I am curious & wondering if there is any word or future of Uniden making a Motorola Phase II TDMA Firmware Upgrade to purchase for their latest models of public safety scanners like the BCD536HP that I do finally own one of to make them compatible for picking up & receiving Motorola Phase II TDMA trunked systems that my county is supposedly going to upgrade & change out to from the now (old & outdated EDACS ProVoice System) this year sometime at a cost of, $20 to $30 million dollars?

All of the current line of Uniden scanners are Phase II capable out of the box:

325P2
996P2
436HP
536HP
HomePatrol 2

Unencrypted communications only, of course.

Are you in Bernallio County? The 536HP is Phase II compatible...
