• 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.

    Cleveland County P25 with RS Pro-2096

    Up until maybe 6 months ago my pro-2096 picked up the Cleveland County/Shelby P25 system great, however, it stopped working (only receiving between 0-14 percent) and I thought there was something wrong with my scanner. I tried the Viper system and it sounds great still so I think the scanner is...

    Pro-2096 Squelch Stopped Working

    The squelch stopped working on the conventional, non-trunking frequencies on my Pro-2096. The squelch opens and closes randomly when there's no signal, or will open on a signal but not close when the signal ceases. The squelch knob has no effect either way I'm pretty sure I'll be sending it...

    ARMER Sites

    I'm looking at ARMER sites in Benton county. The latest map shows sites at Gilman, Duelm, and Blue Wing. Only one of these, Gilman, appears to be in the RadioReference database. Is the database behind? I'm trying to update my PRO-2096 and can't seem to find the sites to go with the talkgroups...

    PRO-2096/PRO-106 Question

    Some time ago I bought a PRO-2096, it was preloaded by the local RS store. Recently I added a PRO-106 to my collection, again preloaded by the local RS store. The PRO-106 seems to hear things that my PRO-2096 does not. I assume there are new frequencies/channels in it that aren't in the...

    We've got a 2096 that has spent it's entire life inside, on a good surge protector, that has suddenly developed a problem. When I put it in manual, and go to our P-25 control channel here, it should show MO, and it does, but only for a split second. As soon as the sys ID info starts to show...
