• 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:

Hello All

Is it true that we cannot pickup any conversation on this type of system in the essex county area.

I am using a BC 780XLT.

Thanks for any info.

I believe you can pickup the conversations but there's no way to separate out users by tracking the system.

I also believe there's a keyup on the frequencies every couple of seconds. Data skip might help that.

I think there is a application similar to Trunker that will Decode Passport and allow you to control another scanner but haven't played with it myself. Trying to listen to a Passport system conventionally with the Home and Collect channels pulsing away will probably drive you nuts.

Eric Cottrel's Beta 4 release of LTRTrunk and LTRDump will track Passport LTR systems. Here is the link.

I live in Essex County, and For me to listen to the new county fire system I set my delay to none and turn my data skip on. I am using this method on my 780, T8 and 396. It seems to work fairly well.
