    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.

    Hytera PD362 Reception Problem

    I just received my Hytera PD362 and it seems like a great little DMR HT Transceiver. The only issue I'm having with it is the reception on digital is dropping every 1-2 secs despite my MD380 maintain constant reception from my openspot. I've adjusted the squelch settings but they don't seem...

    DSD+ 1.101 works on all systems but this one!?!

    Hi all, I have a successfully configured DSD+ install using a RTL2832u + R820T SDR stick. All other systems decode successfully when I have a strong enough signal, but not this one. The problem is not with noise, as the signal is way above the floor. Based on my experience, it sounds like a...

    BC125AT: Scanner will only pick up one frequency

    So I've had the BC125AT for over a year, and it was working perfectly until one day it would not pick up anything. I mainly use it to listen to railroad operations. Even if I was next to the repeater, I heard nothing. However, a few weeks later I tried the weather, and 162.4000 is the ONLY thing...

    BC346XTC suddenly doesn't pick up any radio feeds

    My scanner is about a little over a week old now. Today, I just turned the scanner on, but noticed big problems. I am unable to hear radio frequencies. The speaker works because scrolling through settings creates a tone. The scanner picks up frequencies, but only displays a very small static...
