• 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 was told by a great source that P25 will go full live on Tuesday the 26. EDACS will stay up for units that haven’t been switched over. But yes all Publuc safety TG will be encrypted 24/7

Lived in Pasco County 99-05, bought a house on Scamp Dr just off US 19 and New York, back when scanning was simple. Glad I sold it before the dreaded E moved in. That was a great house, just a street over from the Gulf. Had my own private nook fishing spot. Great HF monitoring on the Gulf for USCG ops. I do miss that place. Good central location for Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando and Hillsborough county monitoring. I'd still be there if it weren't for hurricane damages and denied claims thanks to State Farm Fraud insurance. But don't get me started. That post would be for the Rant section I suppose. Ugh.

I really liked the old Pasco/Pinellas/Hernando 800mhz system. We divided our errands between Spring Hill and New Port Richey and it was so easy to scan the area as I drove on 19. Not like now, I guess. Ah, the good ol' days.

Looks like fd is now encrypted, i looked at the feed and host put system shut down meaning the old system and looked at database for the new system and all talkgrouos are labled DE, so no more monitoring them and st lucie and martin county did the same thing for fd and pd awhile back, florida is not a scanner friendly state anymore.
