If they haven't already, the Evanston Police will eventually switch over to StarCom21, on an encrypted Talkgroup. No scanner can or ever will decode encrypted signals. Otherwise, try 470.5625 MHz, which can be received by any scanner.

It says in the RR database that EPD dispatch is on 470.5625 and simulcasted to a encrypted TG on Starcom. I'm assuming off of message 4 that they stopped simulcasting and moved completely on to the talkgroup.

ibertrang is correct the patch from TG36976 to 470.56250 was shut off within the last week or so. If I can figure out how, I'll update the database to reflect that.

So in other words, Listening to Evanston is out of the question now?
Yes. EPD has went to the dark side. It is illegal to monitor any encrypted traffaic as far as I know. All you can do is hope and pray for a miracal to reverse the encryption decision. (Very highly extremely unlikely)
