Bad news for scanner listeners
Jasper County will be moving to Mototurbo (DMR) within the next couple of years. As of this post there are no scanners on the market that currently decode this protocol. Carthage PD will join Webb City with Kenwoods Nexedge line of digital radios. As mentioned above these digital radios cannot be monitored by scanner radio's.
So hearing little Johnny get pulled over and arrested for warrants may be coming to an end. Unless the scanner industry includes these two formats in new scanners then things will begin to get very quiet here in Jasper County.
