Q) Why is the radio traffic missing from ScanOC?
A) The fire departments with the rest of the agencies that use the shared Orange County public safety radio system are transitioning to a new radio system.
During that transition they are also choosing to encrypt their routine radio traffic. Due to the encryption you will no longer be able to listen to the radio traffic using ScanOC, or any other means.
For our members that have been supporting ScanOC via paid plans all of the recurring payments were shut off in the beginning of the month in anticipation of this cut over.
**It now looks like many of the talkgroups are going to be reverted to non encrypted, we are now working on setting up new systems to monitor the new system. More updates to come soon.

ScanOC is the new way to listen to your local fire department. Many other sites allow you to live stream audio feeds from a radio scanner. This site is different from all the rest. Click above in the scan lists to start the Orange County Fire scanner.
We give you full control of which talkgroups/frequencies you want to hear. We also time shift (like a DVR) the transmissions. When two transmissions overlap using a standard scanner or streaming site you will only hear one, then you will scan into the second one in progress, not here. The site will play the first transmission and when that is complete it will start to play the next transmission from the beginning, this is time shifting like a DVR.
