I have a tech buddy in Portland spoke with him last night. This is what he said.I'm new to Portland scanning. My understanding is that most of the channels are encrypted now?(PPB) I read the previous thread where I believe main dispatch channels are not? That's always been a fear 100% encryption. Yikes..
To answer your question Portland has moved their dispatch channels to their respective Tac 1 encrypted channel. This is supposed to be a temporary solution during the protests. Multnomah Sheriff and Gresham Police are still in the clear.
Well I locked out the dispatch channels because all they are transmitting was a beeping tone every 10 seconds. I do monitor the system for changes so when they open them up again I will just unlock them. I thought the continual beeping would be somewhat annoying to people. And also, Portland Will not be fully encrypting. They have their ENC Tac channels for a reason.
