Anyone have any news about listening to Montgomery Police Department? I used to listen to them 24/7 when they were on 460.500 UHF. I was mad when they went digital encrypted and could no longer listen to them. Is there any new radios out that can monitor them that are within reach for the average Joe? Or is there any new live feeds? Thanks for reading and any replies.

MPD switched over to the county-wide P25 system, but they are still encrypted. You can listen to the MCSO main dispatch channel if you have a P25 capable scanner. They do not encrypt that channel, but the rest of the MCSO channels are. I also hear some of the VFDs on the P25 system occasionally. Don't know if they are switching over to that system or if it is simulcast with their UHF dispatch channel.

Maxwell AFB occasionally broadcasts in the clear, but are normally encrypted.
