    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:

Digital? Someday. I've heard everything from later this year (fall) to mid-Summer next year...

I was watching my TRUNKER screen the otherday and saw a very large number of "new" radio IDs ... some group in the county (or maybe outside the county) seems to be about to get a new set of radios.... I think most/all were in the 44xxx range

I have it on good authority that the City of Annapolis and maybe the county is going to change-over to digtal this September. Also the new site on the Navy station tower is installed and may be operational.

Annapolis -- PD or fIre? doesn't seem to make much sense either way since it's AA County's system -- hard to believe Annapolis will switch to digital before the county....

Perhaps APD is going to be the "guinea pig" to to test the digital system on a limited basis before they go countywide? I'm assuming the new system will be mixed mode, thus allowing both analog and digital radios to co-exist.

Navy tower

I can report that the new AAC trs site on the Navy tower complex on Greenbury point is opperational. Stopped by the old QTH and found I had the TRS at full quiteing on a HT, when in the past it took an antenna 60' high to just get the nerest sie.
