• 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:

I had somebody tell me today that he has sources at Columbus PD and Franklin County sherrif that tells him that Franklin County is going digital within 3 months. Does anybody know any information on this?

There are way too many agencies that still have the MTS 2000 radios and Columbus Fire just got rid of the old HT versions and went to the MTS 2000

Not hardly. Not enough money, and far too many agencies using nearly-new analog radios. All the new dispatch consoles around the county (purchased in the last couple of years) aren't fully P25 capable either; the Centracom Gold Elites are at the tail end of their life cycle and will be phased out in the next year or two by Motorola, which leaves 5-7 years or so of service and parts availability.
