• 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 would only run the site that is closest to you. I use mine at work on just the El Paso Peak Site. Has been comparable to my 436/536. SDS 100 works really good on it.

Yeah, I've been running it just on the East/Central Valley site and holding on 2-DISP1. Unfortunately, it fades in and out-lots of digital interference.

I see an SDS-100 or Unication G5 in my future..lol

There was an update a few days ago. I think there were 4 new sites added. Not sure if it was added before the last Uniden or Whistler data base updates.

School security traffic on TG 1243. Probably one of the Redlands high schools.
Thanks for the update on another talkgroup. Whoever does the Db updates for SBDCO must have gone missing since nobody wants to update the talkgroups.

Looks like Barstow Fire as of today is now dispatching on "The Mountain Simulcast Site"
This is a side effect of the Smartzone system. Transmitting in a given location is not in their "control". If a user in the mountains starts monitoring BRFD-A, the system will start simulcasting in that area.

Yes, this makes sense because the last few days Barstow Fire is quiet on the Mountain System now.

If you have something to share, or see something that needs updating kindly submit the pertinent info and it will get worked.

Exactly this. I just did a big update last night but if you don't make submissions we're not likely to see this thread and make changes just based on your forum posts.

1. Use the forums to collaborate with each other.
2. Verify your info (we aren't allowed to accept "unverified" information).
3. On the appropriate database page (SBDCo P25 system for example) click submit and write a clear and concise submission.

Again, the forum is a great place to collaborate and discuss the latest issues. It is a very poor way to get information added to the database in a timely manner. :)

There is a lot of information regarding this system on the iPhone app called BDC Comm Guide if you want to download it.
