    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.

    BCD436HP: Can you Prioritize Priotrity channels?

    OK, so my history of scanning goes way back (8 channel crystal days), and the newer tech is a bit baffling to someone who just moved up. I *think* I understand that Priority DND in the 436 means that the scanner will NOT check for Priority channels if ANY other channel is being received (i.e...

    BCD996P2: Drop Out Due to WX and PRI scanning

    I know this issue has been mentioned I thought it was just having Priority Scanning on that was doing it but when I turned it off it got better but didn't go away until I turned the WX scan off!

When Priority is enabled on the 396XT, I always get a minimum 1-second pause while the scanner checks stored priority...

    BCD396XT trunking priority says no channel...why?

    I want to monitor a single talkgroup ID in a Motorola Type II system using the Priority Plus option, so I can quickly switch to monitoring only that single ID.
