• 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:

Wow, nothing for 3 1/2 months

I share your concern...I check the forum a couple times a week. It has been very quiet.

Yes not a lot of interest here in Montana its hard for the ones that are to get anything done. I do know of few people in my area that have them because i'm the one they call when they need something programmed.

radio techs were working in Gallatin co on 6/12/19. Paging/range work. Heard one tech say he can't remember when they brought the statewide system up and running.
I think at least 15yrs. It's just been Helena, Lewis & Clark co. & HP. Other counties are just getting on the statewide, or on single P25 freqs in the last 3yrs.
