• 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:

There are a number of digital systems that are montorable.
Some variations, however, are not-Provoice, encrypted, Open Sky, etc. What specific system are you refering to?

It's incredibly easy, the basics can be set up in minutes with a computer. A little longer without, but still painless if you read the manual first.

You can listen to public safety on a Motorola.

Some people will tell you you can't, and with a trunking system, you "Shouldnt", but you can just fine and it works hella better than a chinsey scanner.

Just don't be stupid, that's all I'll say on this.

You forgot to mention the part about the felony charges you'll pickup too from hacking into the trunked system :roll:

That's why I said don't be stupid.


There's a right way to do things and a wrong.

Wrong would not be a good thing.
