Or is my 436 just having difficulty processing the signal from East Mesa? Not showing ENC on the display, and it stops and passes audio of the entire transmission, but it's completely chopped up.
Thanks! Sounds like the Gila River PD is encrypted, too. Funny how these two relatively tiny agencies are encrypted while Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, MCSO, etc. are in the clear. Guess they don't want everyone hearing all the public intox or domestic calls.
DPS, MCSO, and Glendale seem to do everything other than tactical work in the clear....but I'm sure the use of encryption will steadily increase for them as well.Most government agencies in the valley (except Buckeye PD) are intentionally keeping dispatch channels in the clear for some transparency with the media. All these government agencies have encrypted talkgroups where they will change for sensitive radio traffic.
