• 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:

    APX decoding MDC1200

    Ok, I'm not new to radios but am still learning the APX CPS. I had a CDM1550 that would decode MDC1200's and would show an Alias on the display if properly decoded; do the APX series do this, too? If so, where in the CPS is it?

    Control Channel indicate Talkgroups active on site?

    In realtime, does a P25 control channel stream indicate what talkgroups are currently active on the site, and can DSD+ or Unitrunker (or any other software for that matter) have a way to show that (in realtime)? The reason is that I am curious to study what towers (sites) are best for...

    I am setting up a CDM1550LS (VHF Model) to operate as a base station radio and station alerting system. I have all the tone information I need and have successfully programmed the radio to decode the tones. My issue is that the radio does not sound the Alert Tone until after the carrier has...

    BCD536HP: Picking up a DMR Channel

    My company just installed a new conventional digital system and I bought the BDC536HP for monitoring it. I have since found that entering the information is not as easy as I expected and potentially not even possible. It is a conventional DMR system with a repeater with a color code of 3. Is...

    WS1065: bad reception out off box

    I just received a brand new WS1065 and programmed it up as I did with my previous GRE's. I set the scanner up on the same table as other scanners. Where the other scanners picked up local traffic perfectly, the WS1065 did not pick up any traffic. (Yes, I have the proper frequency and PL...

    BCD396XT: BCD396XT Firmware Question

    Hi Folks, I've not been monitoring for a while, so it's been a couple years since I last fired up my BCD396XT. In that time one agency in my area has gone P25 (Washington State Patrol). The 396 decodes their transmissions, but the audio is often distorted and hard to understand. Sounds like...

    TK-7360 two tone alerting

    I would like to understand how to set up two-tone alerting on my TK-7360. (I have the programming software and hardware.) The help menu in the software describes what each key function does, but doesn't explain how to set them up so they all work together. I am interested in being able to...

    BCD536HP: Adjusting Band Defaults Multiple P25 Systems

    So I was reading through the various fixes here on the forum to improve P25 decoding (audio quality). I followed Upmans instructions and changed the Band Default and Default Range. However, I am currently monitoring two P25 systems. Both of which audio quality is lacking. One system is...

    PSR500 decoding P25 issue?

    I'm not sure if it's an issue with the scanner or the system that it's not completed but here's the situation. When the console transmits on a Talkgroup the scanner does not decode the transmission unless there is a radio (mobile/portable) selected on that channel somewhere on the system. Ex...

    Getting audio from your SDR to a program on the same PC (picture heavy)

    First things first, I am not a computer guy, I am a hardware guy (mostly tube type), what follows is just what I have noticed and found to work. I make no claims to being any kind of expert, just a sometimes frustrated user that might have encountered the same kind of problems as other users...

    Vmde-200 decode issues, help

    I have an vmde-200 installed in my vx-929, the radio decodes mdc1200 but doesn't decode DOS mdc1200? Is there anything I can do to make it work. Plus when it decodes mdc it makes a chirp instead of the squawk how can I fix this as well?

    DSD picking up audio when no signal present

    I have a strange thing going on recently and I haven't been able to pinpoint exactly what's going on. Lately while decoding a local 800mhz P25 system DSD will start to attempt to decode audio and partial words will come through. Only thing is the scanner is in SCAN when this happens. It's not...

    396XT P25 settings for RCS help needed

    Even with a full signal on my 396XT, RCS traffic tends to go digital slightly on me most of the time. The units and dispatchers sound too muffled rather than bleeping into "digital". I think this may be the threshhold settings or decode options, but I don't have much experience with those...

    Determining QT/DQT from PL/DPL

    Okay, I am still very new to all this, so please excuse me if this sounds like one of those "duh" questions. I have a TK-2312, and the necessary software and cabling. What I'm a bit confused about is the QT/DQT section when programming in frequencies. The PL's are fairly easy, as they're at the...

    PSR 600 Digital Decode Issue Problem

    My local PD (Cranston, RI) shows "RM" for mode in the database at RR. It also shows "DEF NAC" in the code column. I believe (I'm not sure) that CPD uses P5. I have a new GRE PSR 600 and I cannot get CPD to decode; I can see the signal strength display toggling on and off so I know they are...
