• 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 just received my first digital.. I receive the p25 transmissions from the towers.. Ossipee.. Hosac.. Spruce.. Witten.. Etc.. But not having any luck with Portland Maine? I have my scanner all set correctly with groups and banks.. Not sure I understand the whole "talkgroups" part..

Also does the paid subscription automatically do that in this site? I use freescan.. I have a BCT15X and a BCD396XT. Can someone send a freescan file that covers the Portland area? I'm usually pretty smart when it comes to things.. First CB radio was a Johnson Tube (my parents rig in Scarboro.. Must have had about every make of scanner in the 70's up.. My first digital but getting older and the meds make it harder for me.

The Portland digital system is not in use yet. You may hear some testing, but I haven't in a few weeks.

Portland, Maine P25

In Portland P25 is running for the Department of Public Works and the School Busses. Talk group 1125 is one of the DPW. South Portland Police and Fire are to be on soon and the whole system should be on line by the new year. ID search will find what is going on.. 73 and good luck. Greg
