• 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 often times hear the Sheriff's Department secure their radio's and then all that I can hear is the dispatcher but not the officer. Does anyone know how they are doing this? Are the using a different PL tone or something?

Maybe dispatch turns off the repeat function of the base station, then it becomes a 2 freq (TX F1, RX F2) base, so what comes in the RX only goes to dispatch, and what dispatch says only goes out the TX?

Just one thought.

I've observed the same practice there, and all they're doing is dropping the repeat function. You should still be able to hear the mobile traffic on the repeater input frequency.
