Premium member. It appears Yellowstone County, dispatch for city, county, state law enforcement and for dispatching fire and first responders for the city of Billings, MT has completed their goal of complete encryption as all feeds have been "off-line" for many days now. No need for me to renew my membership. Oh and I am a female retired Deputy Sheriff.

There is still lots to listen to over there if you have right setup. Laurel PD, Stillwater, Carbon, and MHP. If you get one of the new sites programed you might also pick up Bozeman and surrounding Montana P25.

Thanks for your commitment to the Law Enforcement! Enjoy your retirement.
Ocasionally I will get Yellowstone County Sheriff on TGid 12315.
I haven’t been in Yellowstone County since they said they would go to encryption.
As mentioned previously there are other spectrums to monitor.

Yellowstone County Sheriff is encrypted as well? Or does this only apply to City of Billings?

Sounds like a done deal if even John, Beth and Rip couldn't prevent it.:cry:
Bravo Zulu for your service and hoping you enjoy your retirement!

Well at least there is still something to listen to on the county level. Unlike your neighbors to the north, Musselshell County. Was up there for most of my stay in MT and from what I could tell EVERYTHING was fully encrypted VHF conventional. RRDB is way off for Musselshell
