• 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:

Been hearing talkgroup 688 active tonight but haven't a clue what it is. Sounds really informal so far kind of like the HEAT/CID tg's. Maybe Graeme you know what this one is? It from the looks fits in with the other police TG's.

Well, trunker was running last night so I'll check the files and see if I can figure anything out. It figures that the one night I'm bagged from work something pops up...

688 is in the range of the ERU talkgroups...I wonder if they're using a new talkgroup for some reason.

Hmm not sure... the traffic herd didn't quite sound like what you hear on the ERU talkgroups.. but then again not like the CID/HEAT ones either but very informal sounding none the less.

Checked my records and it looks like police radios are affiliating to that talkgroup. I have an incomplete list of ERU and HEAT/CID radios so I'm not going to hazard a guess yet about exactly what this talkgroup is used for.

Hmm well let me know if you find out anything else about this.
