    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:

Monroe County SO on Court TV...

Last week, Court TV ran a documentary called "Party Police", which profiled law enforcement at work during a major event in the Florida Keys (the hospitality convention in Islamorada). What caught my attention was the fact that even though the State of Florida is on the EDACS digital system, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation officers were seen using Motorola radios. It got me thinking:

1. That was filmed before the EDACS switchover in the Florida Keys (I'm guessing it was this year, though it could've been last year), or
2. FWC officers were using Monroe County issued radios for interops.

Anyone care to shed some light on this?

Rumor has it that some state officers in Monroe were allowed to keep their Moto radios to communicate with the County. This happened in more than one county in Florida. Federal agencies in Monroe county are also on the county's 800 MHz system.

I was actually in Islamorada that weekend. If memory serves me correct, the Fish and Wildlife were still on the statewide system ( heard the "Marathon" dispatcher one last time).
I believe they switched shortly thereafter...
