• 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:

Hiya All...

I have heard a few talkgroups that are not currently database that are active.

57674 I am guessing a Boltonville FD Channel
57543 Possibly Germantown Utilities?

I also heard a few "in the clear" P25 radio transmissions on 57652, but most transmissions were Encrypted. Anyone with info on these talkgroups?

I hearing a lot of encrypted traffic on talk groups 57514 & 57515 today. Washington Co Dispatch was been in a couple of the conversations; have logged 8 different radios using the talk groups. Very little WC Sheriff traffic in the clear. I hope this doesn't mean WC went encrypted.

I was hoping it was an event or drill. Sounds like the proper use for encryption - the public doesn't need to know details (drill or real) for something as serious as this as it is happening.
