• 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:

The Baltimore City TRS was one of the first P25 systems in the country. Most comms are in the clear, and most, if not all are P25 digital. I am not impressed with the audio quality. It varies from dispatcher to dispatcher, from very readable to almost incomprehensible. The signal strength is excellent throughout the city, so I think the audio problems are a product of misadjusted equipment, dispatcher accents and training, possibly mismatched equipment - who knows.... Anyway, newer P25 systems in Maryland seem to more readable overall.
