    Encrypted traffic vs. simulcast distortion traffic - What do I hear?

    I'm listening to Viper Simulcast using a SDS 200 and a 996xt. Some traffic is garbled, but portions are semi-coherent. Not sure which radio these calls are on, as both get traffic hits at the same time. How would I distinguish encrypted traffic from a simulcast distorted traffic? What would I...

    WMATA Transit Police Channel

    Does anyone know what happened to the Transit Police channel(s) that could be found here? They just stopped working for me one day and I tried reprogramming today and still nothing is coming through. Maybe it got encrypted or moved to another system (if so, which system?)

    Hey guys, I tried looking at the DMR Association's standards documents (Digital Mobile Radio Association | The DMR Standards, developed by ETSI) for information on how encryption is done within the DMR standard and interoperability (eg. if AES is used in CFB/OFB mode, what is used as the IV)...

    Need advice from the group...

    I'm new to the scanning world. I'm a HAM and am looking into purchasing a digital trunking scanner. However I'm reading on this forum that there is increasingly less to listen to due to the shift to encrypted communication. Is it still worth it?
