• 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:

    Issues tracking Troop E CSP

    I have both a Uniden Bearcat 996T and a RadioShack Pro 106. Both are digital, and in the past, I had no issues tracking any of the CSP sites. A few months ago, I noticed I'm missing transmissions, especially on Troop E's dispatch channel, (CH 37). This mostly happens after someone talks and the...

    Digital trunking unrealistic expectations

    If you are a modern-day police scanner nerd like myself, and have done your homework on the new Digital Trunking systems that are being implemented, they are not 100% reliable.

    Marion County

    Just upgraded to P25-capable digital trunking (RS Pro-106 and Pro-197) but disappointed to hear very little additional traffic. KSCIS appears to have licensed a tower near Aulne, but only Cottonwood Falls and McPherson seem active, albeit with weak signal apparently leading to a lot of false...

    A Digital Pro-107?

    It seems to me that the Pro-107 is almost entirely software driven. RR database, control software, and firmware are all upgradable. So what's to say that DSP funtionality can't be added as a future firmware upgrade? Can APCO-25 and other digital mechanisms be supported with a firmware upgrade or...

    Using DSP Filtering on VHF/UHF

    Greetings All, Would use of a DSP filtering unit (such as a Timewave DSP-599zx or similar) greatly improve the attributes of a wideband receiver/scanner? (in my case an IC-R7100). Is there an added benefit of dsp when tuning into digital modes when using codes such as UniTrunker? Thanking all...

    Digital frequencies

    I am a scanner newby in Blackfoot, ID. I have a Uniden BCD996T. I am trying to program in the county's digital frequencies - sheriff dispatch. I suspect that the frequencies listed in RR are the old analog frequencies and not the new digital frequencies. Can anyone help?
