• 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:

I would look for towers or transmitters popping up with little or no warning around the Metro area. Search mode on a 396T or its base version is a good thing to have right now.

Awesome... I guess this means that MHP will be moving on to astro then? A good reason for me to go get that Uniden 996.

Looking through the proposal, they define it as being a digital system.

also under "requirements of MSWIN" (p. 41), it says "Full features and functions as described by Project 25 ...".

So it looks as if it will be a 700 MHz Project 25 system. But also keep in mind, while this is still in the stage of evaluating the proposals that M/A-COM also has done work on making Project 25 radios and also now some 700/800 band radios too.

Everyone cheer for Motorola!

Phase 1: MHP Districts 7, 8, and 9 (southern region)
Phase 2: MHP Districts 1, 5, and 6 (central region)
Phase 3: MHP Districts 2, 3, and 4 (northern region)

Makes sense to do the southern stuff first, 'weather' and all ;)

Note: Phases will be controlled as subsystems and then utilized as one statewide controlled system. Phase One will be controlled in Hattiesburg. Proposed project start-up date is January 17th, 2007.

The reason they want 9 online first is to tie in to the LATIE ASAP for interop with LSP....
