    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:

Interesting read. I knew that from a previous article I read that they were making the switch. I’m interested to see how they build it out and also I’m interested now that this is coming out in Fargo and Cass will opt out of the Minnesota ARMER. Also I’m interested to know with going 800 MHz if they are planning for a Phase 1 or Phase 2. And I wonder if they will encrypt talkgroup mains full time or if it will be like Minnesota where only secondary talkgroup for that are.
