• 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 apologize in advance for the lack of information in the post, But...

I happened to see some NYC DCAS PD officers today sporting brand new XPR7580 radios with the plastic still on the screen. I did hear MDC1200 (could’ve been from someone carrying an NYPD Portable) so I’m assuming they are operating on conventional frequencies. Are they operating on new 800 frequencies? I remember them being on the DoITT UHF and DoITT 800 system.

a while ago they were on the DOITT 700 MHz system, I'm not sure if they are still on. It's been a while since I searched for new talk groups on that system.

The XPR7550/7580 and APX900 looks almost identical from a distance, the XPR is not compatible with P25, but APX900 is.
