• 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:

More than likely to be a part of the state wide AFRN network. Chilton County SO and Fire and Rescue are already broadcasting on this system.

From the article:

While the plan is to use existing tower sites, additional infrastructure including antennas, repeaters, computer control units for each site and microwave connectivity will be needed.

According to Wright, “The frequencies used are in the 700-800 MHZ range and are specifically for public safety use only.”
That sounds like AFRN to me.
