• 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:

    MTS2000 MDC problem

    I recently got an MTS2000 model 1 radio. I programmed some frequencies for MDC and it mutes it just fine but it sometimes doesn't display ID's on the screen. I thought it could just be a repeater problem etc but when I put it side by side with my xts5000, I noticed the xts would display ID's all...

    Good MDC Decoder Software?

    Does anyone know of a good MDC1200 decoder that I could used with either SDR# or on its own? I can't seem to find one. There seems to have been a mobile app for it, but any DL links have since disappeared or rotted away.

    HT-1250LS question

    Good day all, A few days ago I purchased an HT-1250LS UHF handheld, was excited to get it, hooked it up to CPS & much to my dismay discovered that it doesn't do MDC-1200 (which I rely on heavily for Radio ID's and repeater functions & such...), it will do MDC-1200 in LTR Trunking mode but not...

    [HT1250] Any way to increase max no. of signaling systems?

    Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but a cursory search didn't turn anything up. Looks like the maximum number of systems per signaling type is four on the HT1250's. As the title states, wondering if there's any way to increase this limit? Particularly interested in adding several...

    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?

    Can I get MDC1200 installed on my Baofengs somehow?

    I have 35 Baofeng BF-888s Radios I wish to have an MDC1200 preamble on. I found one guy who said he can install a chip that he can program for me, but he was very shady, I don't trust him lol. Basically what I want is it to give off an ID and have that second of tone that keeps you from...

    There's a lot of new MDT freqs in LA County added for sheriffs, LAPD, LAC fire and even the MTA. If MDT frequencies are unscannable why bother even posting them? I know there are a lot of agencies that rely heavily on MDT messaging, such as LA County Sheriff's department, but there still is...
