• 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:

Hi all,

I recently got back into scanner listening and noticed the frequencies for the GCPD no longer work. I'm not very up-to-date on scanner technology, but I am assuming they went digital?

I found this on the site here - "Greenville PD now uses digital talkgroups on the Palmetto 800 TRS"

What exactly does that mean, and how can I counter this to hear from this frequency again?

If I am assuming correctly, what is the price range on low-end scanners that can receive digital signals?

Thanks.

I anserewed your post in the SC forum. It's usually frowned upon to cross post to more than one forum.

Sorry. I wasn't sure if the SC forum was very active, considering our presence on the internet. :)
