• 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 am a bit confised as to what type of system is in use by the FLA highway patrol. I looked in the database and there are VHF-Hi freqs, low band and a couple of trunked systems listed. I am planning a trip from the northen part of FLA to Naples and wanted to monitor the hwy patrol with my PRO-2096. Any help would be appreciated. And I do have my ham license.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry, the FHP, FWC, DOTMCC, and several other state and some local agencies are no longer monitorable as they are using the SLERS EDACS system which is:

1) 100% Encrypted
2) ProVoice
3) ESK on Control Channel

Sorry.

Thanks for the info. Wow I sure am glad I don't live there full time. Not much fun to have a scanner in the Sunshine state!

FHP is not the only thing to listen too. There's plenty to listen too in Florida.

FHP still has access to mutual aid talk groups in every area of the state and during anything big like a chase or a disaster or a fire or big wreck on the interstate or something you can hear them talking to local agencies on some of the old 'state band' or 'sheriff's band freq's', especially in the more rural counties.
