Thanks for the file. Uploaded to my 396xt with Freescan and get an error; "No APCO Band Plan." I let it scan all night and received nothing. Anyone have any suggestions?

I wonder if there has been a noticeable drop in activity here due to analog scanning being phased out. I'm not about to shell out big bucks for a P25 capable scanner, especially since to me the audio is lacking.

In my care though is a 396T that belongs to a friend. The display doesn't work and I have been thinking about getting it fixed for him. Uniden has a $50 blanket repair charge that doesn't seem to bad.

I had a seven year old 396 repaired by Uniden last year. The scanner I received back was essentially a brand new radio. Very pleased with what I got for $50.

A 396T will work very well on this system IF you are in the right location and/or have it on a good antenna. Since the switch to the P25 system I've given up on mobile or portable monitoring. Both my 396 and HP- 1 are tethered to yagi's. Everyone's experience varies, depending on where in Charlotte you are located.

Hey Guys new to the board here in the Charlotte Area. I just recently bought a uniden sportcat 180 for the races and I was also wanting to listen to CMPD as well. Will this radio work for that or will I have to get a scanner for the home. I am very new to the field of working a scanner so any info would help. Thanks Guys

If it isn't a digital scanner it will not pick up Charlotte PD.

For at least the last two days Charlotte Fire Conf 1 (991) has been coming across occasionally encrypted. I thought it was full time encryption but I see in Unitrunker it sometimes comes across in the clear. it appears to be one particular user i.d. that is encrypted. I thought these talkgroups were strapped to be either clear or encrypted.

Database update today shows only CFD Conference channels encrypted. Hopefully that will be all.

Alarm, events 2 fire, and the few ops talkgroups I saw go active are all still in the clear. The only encryption I've seen is on conf 1, and that was two particular user I. D. 's. If the database is updated then I'm guessing someone knows more than us, and hopefully this is it. Also been wondering why the dual voice and locution dispatching that's been going on for awhile now on alarm and events 2. That's always been an occasional thing but for now at least is constant.

Question Help With Scanner settings

Anyone that can help me with my scanner settings for the Charlotte-Meck P25 system. I have a PSR800 & Pro 18 scanners and am having trouble getting clear reception. I get a full five bars of signal, but the transmissions are very garbled at times? Can anyone give any tips or tricks to receive them clear??

Thanks in advance,

Jason
