Just curious if Police across WA statewide are encrpyed, or are there some areas/channels that are still analogue or digital clear and if so, what areas are still able to be scanned?

Thanks for your replies.

Some areas are not digital although I don't know which. Most heavily populated areas are.

Smaller and smaller amounts of analogue still around.

From what I can hear from here with directional antennas, a bit of Northam and York is still analogue and channel 11 in Jarrahdale that is part of a huge linked system that goes through Wagin and down to Albany.

These channels are on the stream but there's very low traffic.

Does anyone know if the regional conventional digital radio is encrypted. ive noticed it's not P25 trunked until your in the main rural centres like Albany Esperance and Kalgoorlie so thought that there was a possibility that the conventional digital stuff might not be.
