You are exactly right. Make your voice heard loudly but very civilly...just don't threaten as that will likely shut down the conversation.We need to put a stop to this level of mass encryption. We need to petition, call them, email them, and contact the media about this situation. I think sometimes they forget we have a right to petition them with our grievances.
New scanners such as the Uniden BCD436HP do indicate encryption if you watch the screen. Where it would normally indicate P25 and DMR indications, it instead indicate ENC for encryption. Also you can usually tell also that the channel will pop up for a brief second and disappear.most of the new scanners just overloking encryption or don't indicate encryption so its hard to say, "showing up", other than favorite frequencies-talk groups-channels are mysteriously coming up silent. Either they have gone to something new, crime has disappeared (fat chance) or trhey have gone encrypted.
