• 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 am going to be spending a lot more time in Sacramento County than before and want to know if the trunked systems are digital or not?

I see in the DB that it says both analog and digital. If it is not yet, does anyone know a timeframe for it going digital?

Thanks.

99% of the traffic on the Sacramento TRS is analog. Only one agency, Los Rios College, is digital. You can see the scanners I use below to monitor.

You may see some casual changes to digital in the distant future (months/years) , but that is user dependent. Each agency/department has their own timetable. Sac Sheriff and Sac Police have a timetable in years due to the large number of radios that need to be replaced.

Buying a radio like the Uniden BC-246T and you'll have plenty of time to enjoy monitoring Sacramento County agencies/departments.
