• 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:

Has any system so far in the "Wave 1" region, or anywhere for that matter, been reconfigured in the 800MHz band? It seems as if it would have happened by now somehwere and we'd have some insight how this might actually effect scanners.
If not, does anyone know if systems are soon scheduled to be changed?
Thanks,
BG

Since the earliest that any reconfiguration was to take place was 2nd QTR of 2006 and Wave 1 has until the end of 2007 to finish and everyone is behind in implementation, I would just be patient. It will happen.

Our tech's programmed in the new frequency set on all EDACS units over the last few months as a separate "bank" in addition to the current 800MHz system. When we have to switch over, it is a relatively simple process to bring several hundred radio units (bases, mobiles, and H/T's) to the rebanded requirements. Don't ask me how; that's why we have qualified radio techs.

no trunking systems in connecticut yet, but some conventional repeaters have been moved.
