    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    Uniden 996T

    My scanner suddenly went dead, nothing being picked up whatsoever. I decided to take the covers off and found this lead from the center conductor on the antenna jack broken off. Fixing it won't be a problem, but I've noticed it is connected through an electrical component. I've attached a...

    BCD996T no reception in 935-940mhz after upgrade to 3.02.00

    Last night, I upgraded my bcd996t firmware to 3.02.00 from the original 1.03.11. Since the upgrade, I noticed that it would not lock on the control channel of the 935mhz to 940mhz systems, even while using an outdoor antenna and even when setting the squelch to 0 while in scan mode. I set up...

    I've downloaded Butels latest and greatest, and have been able to import files to Main screen. I can view/edit the info in the file. When I "Save all open files", however, they are saved as back up files. ie. D_20 T20.53 etc. They do not save to the ARC996PRO folder. They can be found in...

    996T Tone-Out for Boone County Fire (Zionsville)

    I have had a 996T for some time, but I have never programmed the fire tone-out options. Does anyone have set-up parameters for Boone County Fire tones? I am surprised that the RR database doesn't have an area for these? Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided...
