Hello, Is anyone out there able to scan the new SPD radio? I have a BC80XLT which worked fine on Thursday and now I just hear crazy noise when they transmit. What kind of scanner can get this new radio? Also, how about encryption-if they are encrypting there would be no way to hear them? Tom
Awesome,Nice catch and thanks for noting and posting the info you've found.I updated my 996XT last night.I did some contract work in Springfield today. Was there bright and early this morning and caught the chanegover/radio testing.
Thanks Garys, I really appreciate the info! Def happy to hear they're not encrypted! I'm afraid it will be some time before I can afford a new scanner. I saw one on ebay at $160 bid, from there they quickly go up to $220, $260 etc. I work security on Union St in Spfld and it was good to monitor what was going on right around me...so many shootings etc. Once again thanks!
OK, so what you mean about NAC capability would be more than 1 agency on the same p25 conventional channel?Which we know that Springfield PD is the only one on that frequency and sepreat nacs would not have to be programed. Sorry about all the questions, just don't want to buy the wrong radio and all this digital is new to me. I've been listening to springfield for 40 yrs with the same 460.100 analog freq.Yes, even a 996T or 396T. Although the digital decoding is better with the newer generation of scanners and the "T" scanners didn't have NAC capability.
