• 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 figured that would happen when Winter Park went encrypted alittle while back, here in Central Florida. I am glad there is still plenty to listen to from 30 -1300 mhz. I wonder if there will be a flood of cheap scanners on the Local markets?

Ripped...Return greetings as well. I live in that little section of Sem Co. between Longwood + Lake Mary. We are protected by Sem Co SO. They are great folks...watched the house when I was on vacation with extra patrols. I feel good they watching over my wife and child when I am pulling night shifts at ORMC. Wife can get scared at night occasionaly with "sounds outside"...have her call the non emergency line, folks are always great too her! Longwood is great too...helped me install a car seat as new Dad, nice LEOs..can't say enough.

On subject..I have seen some local scanners selling cheap. A Pro-95 for 50$ and a AOR 1000 for 100$.Also a few older conventional scanners in the 30$ RANGE. I wonder sometimes if the changing tech will cause some folks leave the hobby. Hope not...lots too listen too..
All the Best, 73...

That blows, maybe the media will do a feed and then things will work out for the most part. They can always ecrypt what they dont want the media to hear.........Hoser

Hey I live in that area too (Lakewood subdivision). Now just hope that Orlando FD and GOAA Fire (OIA fire dept.) won't go the same route as Orlando PD for radio transmissions . Every other fire department around here except Apopka and Reedy Creek is analog (the latter two are unencrypted digital).

The Ultimate Goal Eventually is to get Seminole, and Osceola on board as well

i am hearing fire will not be encrypted as of yet

the guy in the video is not to blame, hell at least he said something about it.

Orlando's Scanning Community never raised a stink at all

oh well they have their new toy now, and i can save money not having to buy more radios
