• 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:

Just read an article in the Hartwell Sun that the funding appears to have been approved to go to a digital system. Mobile Communications is getting the statement of work order, $641,643 total. About 480 radios.

The cost sharing proposal they presented said it was the same type of system Elbert County switched to in 2017. That is apparently a VHF DMR sytem based on the Elbert County thread. The 480 radios are for the county, city of Hartwell and the board of education.

I figured as much. Is Elbert encrypted? I don’t have DMR capability yet.
