• 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:

Austin, Tx 78750
Westlake FD Chief told me today that Westlake PD is switching to the Austin/Travis County
Apco 25 system...He said they just recieved nine Motorola Xts 5000's...As soon as I get the new talkgroup ID's I will post them on the database...Can't wait to listen to Westlake PD on the digital system, when I monitor Westlake PD on 857.93750 DC:115 The dispatcher sounds like they are on a speaker phone!! (very annoying!!) When they switch over to the digital system I hope the sound quality will improve. (i'm sure it will!!)
I am currently listening to the Austin/Travis County Apco 25 system with my Pro96:)
