• 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.

    Alrighty, allow me to explain this mess. I have an XTS5k model II capable of 9600 baud trunking. I program it step by step for NAS like I've done on plenty of other systems and to no avail it doesn't work.

    GD-77 VFO scanning!

    How can I make the scan stop on the current channel in vfo mode? It always jumps to the beginning. Very annoying when you pass up a transmission and can't go back to the frequency. I can't find any documentation on "search" mode either. Carrier and time were self explanatory.

    APX 7000 Scanning Beep

    I have recently programmed my APX and when scanning I'm getting a beep when switching between channels. I have looked in the Scan Wide and Radio Profiles but didn't see anything that jumped out to me. Does anyone else know where I might find out where the setting is located?

    BCD996P2: Slow Priority Scan

    Just a quick question about Uniden Priority scan. I've owned a BCD996P2 for quite some time now and it's a beautiful scanner. It works perfectly except for one function, it's analog priority scan. It's remarkably slow, as in it pauses to check the priority channel for enough time to make any...

    UV-82 scanning

    Ok, I've programmed memory channels on a baofeng uv82 v2+ for a friend. The question is, can you "scan" the memory channels that are programmed? Not too familiar with this radio but it seems like a solid little handheld! Thanks for any help.

    Icom F121/221 No Mic Scan Bypass Plug

    After an exhausting search (to no avail), for a schematic to make a bypass plug for an Icom F121 I decided to figure it out for myself. I wanted to basically use the radio as a scanner without the possibility of it being able to transmit as it is sharing a receive antenna with other receivers...
