• 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:

San Diego City 700MHz System

I find the 700 system to be extremely inconsistent on the BCD436HP. One transmission will sound terrific then the next one from the same dispatcher will be garbled and inaudible. I'd guess that professional radios don't experience the same problem as the scanner though.

Does anyone have experience with the Unication G4/G5 pagers or the SDS-100 on the system for comparison?

I have it on good authority that the City might transition to this system in July 2019. The company I work for does work for the Community College District, and we had to scramble to get 700mhz cards for their campus repeaters.

Bud, perhaps they will deprecate the old system to city workers and such. As it stands now, Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM, the 700MHz system is at 90% capacity, and that is just from the three most long winded garbage truck drivers!
