• 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:

    XTS3000 Rx Delay?

    Okay, I'm having a bit of an issue and I am beating my head against the wall here. I recently picked up an XTS3000 and programmed it to work like my old MT & HT. Everything works great with exception to there being a delay on the Rx side of things. When someone starts transmitting, I lose the...

    Delay Time

    I know there is no way to actually set a delay for conventional frequencies like you can trunked. But, is there a way to, sort of, trick it to basically be the same as being delayed. Would it work to set the same conventional frequencies in multiple banks in the same channel or in different...

    Signal Delay Question

    Hi, newbie member with newbie question, just wondering: If I am within a small office building listening to the radio (AM or FM) is there a delay in receiving the signal due to the building and surroundings? Or would I receive the signal at the same time as if there was no building? I know the...

    Negative Channel Dropout Delay?!?!?!?

    I have a BCT-15X... Can someone please explain what Negative Channel Dropout Delay (Forced Resume) is/means? All I see is a few sets of negative #'s and I have Googled and Wiki'd and nothing seems to clarify what its purpose is... Much appreciated! :)

    Feed Delay

    Has anyone found a way to delay our scanner feeds yet? There is a 30 second delay as of right now, but for officer safety, it needs to be longer. For us who owns scanners, we hear it right away. But for officer safety, there needs to be more of a delay in the feeds than 30 seconds. So...

    Priority Delay: 396XT vs PRO-95/97

    Just curious if there is a quick fix or if this is just a Uniden quirk. I've read other posts in regards to P25 delay time, but I'm currently only scanning conventional systems. When Priority is enabled on the 396XT, I always get a minimum 1-second pause while the scanner checks stored priority...

    Delay in broadcast(s)?

    I monitor the Atlanta Police Zone 2, 5 and Fire Dispatch feed and I've noticed with fire dispatch there is sometimes a two to five minute lag in what I'm hearing. What I mean is that I live about a quarter mile from Atlanta fire station 30 and they will pass by responding to a call and I'll just...

    BCT-15 CTCSS delay

    My BCT-15 sometimes misses up to half a second of transmissions on some frequencies with CTCSS enabled. I can set here with my PRO-136 (no CTCSS) and BCT-15 held on the same frequency, and the BCT-15 usually misses the first quarter second, and sometimes half a second of transmissions. However...
