    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.

    BC796D not holding on some transmissions

    I know the scanner it kind of old, but it's the only one I have. Lately I've been noticing that while scanning, the scanner will stop on an active frequency, and then start scanning again before the transmission is even finished.
