• 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:

Over the past year or so there seems to have been an increase in encrypted TGs on the Fairfax County P25 system. Anyone have any idea what some of these more frequently used ones may be?

1451 is listed as Prince William Fire 5B

Also in the 1300 range I believe they are the Encrypted Coordination / Interop Channels

How do you determine the channel usage (i.e. Coord D11) if the TG is encrypted?

Well I looks like some of them belong to GMU Police Department. They have finally done it and are in the process of or have totally switched over from analog 800mhz to the county's trunk system. I had heard that was coming.

They haven't switch anything over as of last night. I wondered how anyone knew to submit those TGs if there not active. I monitored the Fx TRS along side the GMU conventional. GMU still squawking the analog channels.

Their radio system is aging and the university has not been willing I guess until now to upgrade. Makes too much sense for fire response and and police and sheriff overtime details for eagle bank arena. Not sure how that affects the other campuses though

Looking for an update to GMU PD. First notice of this was in February. The database was updated, but no changes yet in September.

Mabye we should hold off on the database updating until someone can actually confirm these talk groups are working.

Just my 2 cents.

The talkgroups are active. Officers haven testing them. What is holding up the full time use is the installation of the communications center hardware and software to have dispatch consoles.

Why do you ask that? Have you heard anything? I also have them set up in a Relm BK KNG-M800 commercial brand radio. There are no favorites lists or service tags for that radio. It just works.

I was going by what KD4IIW stated that they are active and testing. If you're not hearing anything, maybe you have something set wrong.
