• 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:

Talk groups IDs would change...

I have not heard anything about Richland County moving all of their communications to digital mode, which is what I assume that you mean. If they were to change to digital talk groups they would have to upgrade all of their radios to either XTS/XTL 1500, 2500, or 5000s as well as reprogram all of their radios to digital talk groups.....As a result, all of their talk group IDs would change.

If they don't already have digital capable radios, it would cost them a lot of money to move to digital mode. Moving to digital is the right thing to do and almost any new system, including the new Palmetto system upgrades (i.e. Charleston County), will be digital only networks.

If I hear anything, you all will be the first to know!

they might after rebanding, as we are going to have most of our radio's replaced anyway as they are not upgradeable after rebanding, so they might take the step to digital then, but i doubt it, for rcsd, leon lott has better things to do and no need for cfd to go digital, only cpd is and it'll probably be that way for a while....
