• 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:

    Failing to Receive VHF Trunk System

    I am attempting to scan the Maine State Communications Network (MSCommNet, link to RRDB below:), and experiencing an odd phenomenon. A GRE scanner decodes and receives the system fine. A 436hp shows full signal strength, but has no audio. An HP-1 will not show an active site while holding on the...

    HP-1: Scanner does not receive anything - Help

    Just upgraded my HP-1 with the extreme upgrade. Prior to this, the HP-1 worked fine, no issues. My local police upgraded their system and I could no longer hear them. So, I upgraded the firmware and DB to get up to date. That, however, seems to be a problem. Now the scanner does not hear...

    About a week ago, 3 separate, newish Uniden HP-1s simultaneously and suddenly lost the ability to hit on and/or decode the Dept of Public Safety (SYSTEM) IMPD (DEPT) CHANNELS. This was after several months of performing flawlessly. In immediate side-by-side comparison, the Uniden BCD436HP &...

    HP-1: Mixed TDMA/FDMA talkgroup support

    Let me get this right out of the way first: I understand the HP-1 is not able to listen to TDMA talkgroups. If unlistenable modulation formats such as NXDN, D-Star and talkgroups marked Encrypted are imported, I don't understand why TDMA talkgroups aren't imported? There's a system near me...

    Pentagon JNCR

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to monitor the Pentagon via the JNCR system on my HP-1 but I'm not hearing anything. The radio occasionally stops briefly on TG 201 but no audio is heard. Anyone else listen to the Pentagon? Is it just my HP-1 or is the system not active? Signal strength shows 4 bars...

    Bucks County Radio and Homepatrol

    After installing a better antenna on my Homepatrol my reception of the Bucks County Motorola trunk system really went downhill. Garbled broken up audio and the scan time increased sometimes pausing on Bucks for 5 or more seconds. Why? The database has 5 sites for the Bucks trunked system. With...

    Frequency coverage of Home Patrol - 1

    I am considering buying Home Patrol - 1. However, I see that it does not cover the 1240 - 1300 MHz frequency. Would I be missing much without those frequencies? Is there that much activity on that band?

    Homepatrol HP-1 will not scan??????

    Having an issue with my new HP-1. After power up it locks onto a frequency (there is no talking) and will not scan, it just stays on that channel. I have checked the squelch, and even cleared all programming and started fresh, still the same result. Anybody have any ideas here... Thank you, Dan.

    Ramblings of a new HP-1 owner

    I thought I would share my very positive experience as a brand new HP-1 owner. I have been into scanning since the very old crystal/tunable thing that went between the car's (AM) radio and antenna (darn close to 50 years)! When I got my 396T and 996T they were somewhere around my twentieth...

    Geotag overlap and options

    Since the advent of GPS-aware scanners geotag data has become important to RR and scanner users. The concept is brilliant but I question the execution. For example, Massachusetts has a large multi-user Motorola SmartZone system for the Mass State Police and other subscribing entities. This...
