• 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:

Used to hear them on 460.125 and 460.075 but now there's data-type bursts on those channels, so assume they're on new voice channels now. Anybody know what they are?

Still on 460.125, but they've gone digital

I passed through Kings County in April, and 460.125 was loud and clear in P25 digital mode. I didn't hear anything on 460.075 or 460.55, but I was zooming through on I-5. They were readable from the north end of Fresno County all the way south to the Grapevine with my Pro-96 and a quarterwave mag-mount antenna. Got to hear them doing an interesting pursuit down SR41... and a couple assisting CHP officers were complaining to each other that they could no longer hear Kings Co. on their radios (scanners, I presume), and had to wait for relays between the Kings Co & CHP dispatchers. So much for interoperability

I may be mistaken, but I think I heard Madera PD using P25 digital as well, on 453.725 and 453.150.
