• 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:

Heard an officer telling serviceside that his radio was going to show up as Robert 1 until the radio tech can get it changed. He got the chief's old car since the chief got a new charger. Also Motorola techs are in town working on the Tulsa System.

Yeah I have been monitoring the City of Tulsa techs daily on their 3 analog channels and it sounds like they have doing some type of upgrade. Whatever it is they are working over time and have had crews at the 61st and Sheridan Tower as well as BOK. HMMM? Anyone else want to give them a listen? They are on...

Telecom-A 36688
Telecom-B 39568
Telecom-C 39600

They have also been known to use digital P-25 comms between each other using the new unidentified talkgroups that start with a 1 and also digital P-25 I-Calls. If you guys want to know what is going on with the City's radio system they will usually tell if you listen for awhile?

One of these techs is the friend who told me about the switchover timeline being before the end of 2006. Tons of over time. He's exhausted and has a long time to go. The the city (or state, not sure which) is up against the deadline of a "use it or lose it" Homeland Security grant for P-25.

I think the lesson here is that the only way to get government to spring into action is to take money (or power) away from them.
