• 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:

Does anyone know if and when SPVM (Montreal Police) does move to APCO 25 like SIM (Fire) did, will it be encrypted?
We've been hearing that rumo(u)r for several years now but as of my last visit (June), all was still on UHF. A variation of the rumor I've heard is that they (and SIM) will go to the RSP! Can't imagine they'd abandon such a new Motorola system, but you never know.

They will change for sure, somewhere between 2007-2008 on the Motorola digital 3600 bauds, the city of Montreal system. They have not yet choose what it will be: all encrypted or just some talkgroups.
