Looks like theMiami-Dade County Public Services (Project 25) is full encryption?

Everything shows up as muting encrypted voice. via DSD+

and scanner also shows talkgroups but no audio.

Anyone confirm?

I wonder why radio reference does not update the database to reflect that the system is full encryption.

It was? Source?

I thought all the LE stuff was on the old system still.
look at my initial post.

LE is still on analog EDACS.

But it seems the P25 system which has a couple of talk groups, they are showing up Encrypted Voice muted via DSD+

And on my 996XT the system talkgroups do show up but they are muted ie no audio.

Right now the groups seem to be stuff like school busses etc on the P25 but when LE moves over I venture it will all be encrypted then.

Does anyone else here listen down south? to confirm what I am finding.

I read your post, but how do you know those are LE groups?

The person responsible for the actual deployment...that's who.
Makes sense. When even the Garbage truck talkgroups are encrypted in the new P25 system you know its gonna be a 100% scanner blackout come December 2014.

From what I heard the entire system moves to the new P25 this December.

my 996XT will be a nice doorstop once in Jan 2015 :)

Really disappointing.

And frankly somewhat surprising.
why surprising. Encryption is trivial with these new fancy radios, and with these online scanner feeds etc.. More incentive. The funny thing is the only thing in the clear is the EDACS test message "this is a test of the Harris P25 ..."

Dade County P25

I don't know where this person is getting this stuff but not true.
First of all all Local Government talkgroups are on the 800 mhz system.
And all are digital and monitorable.
I have confirmed Headquarters and Intercity in the clear.
The cut over for PD is supposed to be sometime in April.
But you know how those deadlines go.
The 700 mhz system is only for interop purposes.
They only did that system so the could get $$$$$.
The FD units that do use the system will be with the Local Government.
PD will be on the 800 mhz system.
It is not easy to monitor the current Local Government stuff, depending on your location.
If you are not in Dade County then forget it.
I have not run DSD Plus on the system but have run Pro96Com.
Pro96Com shows you all information including talkgroups and radio id's.

What talkgroup iDs did you hear in the clear, which site are you monitoring. Miami TCC?

This state for scanning public safety has taken a HUGE hit, and not for the better. Every other week it's one county or another. As much as I would like to upgrade to a newer model, like the Uniden's, I just can't see it.

party is over, sell me all your EDACS radios for cheap and put the scanner junk on ebay lol :p

all talk groups on the new 700/800 system are full time encryption AFAIK
