Did anyone honestly believe they would go to a system that could be scanned by equipment for amateur home enthusiasts? Even if they did go to a system that could be heard on a scanner, I'd expect them to go 100% encrypted.got some news yeaterday a friend of mind was at the Motorola shop in Parma they told him there working on building the system now and doing testing but would not say if its a phase-2 type i'm going to program the frequencys posted from here and see if i here any radio traffic i'll be useing a GRE-800 scanner and do a wild card.he said the system should be up 100% by the end of next year cleveland EMS is first to move then FIRE then POLICE last so lets see if anyone gets anything from the frequencys.
Let's hope so.Regarding encryption, it's possible. Cleveland and SWRCN are merging. SWRCN does use encryption for PD and Fire, but not for other system users. Cleveland also has more than PD and Fire on their current system. For example, I'd be surprised to hear the Water Department was encrypted.
Plus Cleveland is trying to recruit other Cuyahoga County communities to join their system. Most are shocked by the cost of the digital radio's they'd have to buy. I seriously doubt they'd be willing to spend even more money for encryption, since they don't use it now.
Yes I just said I did that… Maybe just program in the new frequencies (proposed) in conventional mode and see what happens......
