I loved being able to listen to what was going on in my town. But as of two days ago, I learned that Dunellen Police have switched over to Piscataway's new encrypted radio system.
This means we won't be able to hear what's going on in town anymore. This really is a big disappointment to any police scanner hobbyists locally. What small one square mile town needs their radio traffic to be fully encrypted? I think It's a waste of tax payer money.
Encryption should be used only to hide sensitive information from the general public. Not for daily operations. I'm really disappointed. Now I'll be out of the loop about information in town.
Any thoughts on this?
