Yes, that would suck.

Unlike the police, FESA WAERN etc St John's have kept news of this new network pretty close to their chest. I'd assume they're using Simoco gear since they've used Philips/Simoco gear for eons (http://www.simoco.com.au/SIMOCO-History.html)

Yes just put 415.00 and save.When youve saved it press yes then go down to audio type press yes again.Make sure it is on all.You should pick it up.Also while your there put in 500.050(airport fire tenders)

I dont have a digital scanner yet, , great, another one going encrypted, I dont quite see why they need encryption, most of ther sensitive data goes over a secure network anyway??? what a waste of money :| next to happen is the cleaning staff at the observation city hotel to go encrypted too.......cant let that sensitive cleaning information get away.........
