• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Playback audio has disappeared

    I am running a BCD996T on ProScan. When I playback recordings of scanner traffic, the audio sounds "echoey" or "tinny". So I opened up the audio tab and started "adjusting". My scanner is connected to my SoundMax sound card with a stereo cord, even though I only see the graphic display of...

I have located...

    BCD996XT front port...issures...@#$$%%^

    The front port and/or associated connection cables on the 996T and 996XT has to be one of the poorest design ideas I can imagine. The port wouldn't be so bad if the cables which connected into them were at 90 degrees, but to stick out an inch is crazy. The port and cable connector are both so...
