• 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:

According to Radio Reference database, the Windsor Ontario Type 2 system in Essex Co may now be deprecated. There is a new P25 Phase 1 system which your scanner will receive. Set it up as P25 AUTO with Default T-Tables. Your scanner will also do Motorola Type 2 systems. You will not be able to monitor police. They are all encrypted.

There is a forum for Ontario. I suggest that you start a thread there to get more information about the Windsor system. I am a little out of range to check it out from my location. Once you find if the Type 2 or P25 system is active, you can come back here and get more help for your scanner.
