• 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:

Hearing dispatchers advising officers of radio system problems with radios in the field not getting through and some dispatch comm not getting through as well.

Radio techs are stepping through some of the LCN's on TG 129 with test counts at the time of this post.

I heard this as well - wonder what changes they have made or what else maybe going on to make this happen ??

It sounded like some type of television video signal interference getting into some of the voting receivers. (buzzing sound interference with transmissions from the field)

Does not explain the alleged console problems though.

hmmm, sounds like you were hearing more of the interference than I was and I'm just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

From what I heard, it was only the dispatcher's who were having problems hearing the officers. One of the dispatchers actually asked if anyone was having a problem hearing him. Didn't hear anyone chime in.

Interesting that I was able to hear both sides of the conversation clearly but the dispatchers were having trouble hearing the officers.

I wouldn't be surprised. Many times, the link from dispatch goes via landline (phone or T1) to the sites rather than actually over the air. Maybe that's where the problem is, rather than the radio system itself.

Just my .02 :)
