The radio operator can turn encryption on and off. Either they forgot to turn it back off or inadvertently hit the switch.

Yes , i called and the reason they went to the ADP encryption is the media were getting to the crime scene before they were. All TPSO and HPD talk groups are now encrypted. they do have a dispatch 3 talk group that is not encrypted for the Fire Departments ineropability.

The S.O. and P.D. channels that were programmed in our XTS2500's aren't even getting a tower signal.
We have 8 S.O. channels and 6 P.D. channels.

The only radio that catches P.D. and S.O. Dispatch without doing anything "special" is our chief.

We also have a Bailiff channel and a Jail channel. Both are direct channels (portable to portable). Does anyone know who or what the Bailiff channel is?
Does anyone know if the Jail is encrypted?? I never heard anything on these channels.


I Heard talk that some fire depts are looking into encryption.
I don't think it'll happen though, I never heard anything about it again.
That just dosen't make sense anyway.

@ shew... lol darn it! Thanks for the info. I wonder why they even put those channels in our radios.? Just to tease us?!

I have a question about you scanner....Do you hear the page outs on the digital scanners? And, have you heard any page outs or anything voice traffic on the 3 fire dept dispatch and the 3 talk channels?

I'm now looking into getting a digital scanner.

Awsome. I know the 700 radios can get the page outs, that's how we know it's our dept. Our station radio is on the page out channel. Montegut and schriever's tone sound just like our tone. District 8 has one (for sure) 700 radio. It's one of the chief's. I heard him acknowledge pager test on it once.

Thanks for the info.
