• 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:

Having just moved here from NJ and only been monitoring the New Hanover System (Wilmington PD, Sheriff's...etc)..I'm about to receive a Pro-2096 in a day or two and need to know what if any of the Viper system will I be able to monitor from my location (Wilmington)??

You can hear occasional traffic on the New Hanover County site. On the Viper list it's site number 11.

You'll hear mostly dispatches from Elizabethtown (Etown) and sometimes a trooper will talk on it. Sometimes Viper tech people.

You won't need the '96 to monitor Viper in Wilmington, it's analog here. But in other places in the state the '96 could monitor the digital side of it.

I realize New Hanover is analog I just wanted to know if there was any digital nearby that I could try the 2096 out. So the simple answer I assume would be that there is no need for digital just yet here in Wilmington not much nearby to listen to digitally? But there will be real soon I'm guessing?? I just want to know because I'm about to upgrade seriously in the next couple weeks...Maybe I'm jumping to soon...

New Hanover County has plans to eventually go APCO-25 (digital). It maybe a while before that happens.

I can't remember the exact timeline but it will happen.

Scroll down and check out the meeting minutes. You'll get a good idea there as to where the system is and going.

The closest digital to New Hanover County will be the Jacksonville TRS System. Only a handful of talkgroups are Digital (All EMS Tac Channels, and Hospital Reports). There is an 800 licence if you look on the Onslow County page that is also P25. I can't find a good reason for that to be justification to travel up there, but to each their own.

Hope this helps...
