Re: Encryption

Here is how social media has forced public safety to encrypt 
A call goes out that little Johnny didn’t show up at school. His dad hunts and has guns. The Assuming social media person says Johnny must be at home and has his dads gun and is going down to the schoolyard and is going to shoot everyone.  Yea it’s dumbasses like this that warrant encryption.

Usually, the News people have to buy the same radio that the agency is using and they allow them to receive the encrypted channel, but they have more encrypted channels the police can use. So they can listen to Sanitation, Street, Water, Dog Catcher, Bus Drivers and low and behold, the Fire Dept. The portables are about $ 1000.00 each and they have two of them.  The rest of the listeners only get to listen if someone turns off the encryption.  Baa Baa Baa, Baa Baa Baa, That's all Folks !!!!!!!

I have a technical question.. A big city I used to listen to went encrypted
(after a cop got shot in the face answering a domestic call) - and much as
it bums me out - I get it.  So the news/media was shut out as well and they
screamed for a week or so - and then got "let in" - but my question is - how
did they get let in? Is it a special frequency?  A special receiver they
have to have?  Do you think it's just one receiver at the TV Station, rather
than all the news cars have it on scanners in their cars?  Just curious how
they are getting it..  Much as I'd like to - I know I can't!

Thanks - Maggie

I will never criticize someone for putting out a fire
before the FD arrives. That is, after all, the goal.

I don't care if it's the local refuse collector who does it.
