• 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:

    396XT Issue

    Hi. My new 396xt seems to revert to scanning EVERY band after scanning my programmed channels and I can't figure out how to go back to scanning (instead of searching bands) or to stop this. I'm not sure if this is a system or what. The text is '-1' and then it goes from around 30-40, 130, 450...

    Hi, I recently put my BC996XT in a new car. I have it plugged in via the cigarette power adapter. If I turn the volume up past approximately the 2 o'clock position and the scanner receives a transmission, the scanner will crash and restart itself. It won't work correctly until I turn the volume...

    Old TV antenna troubleshooting

    Hi all, I've enjoyed perusing this site, gleaning what info I can understand. I like to think I'm pretty tech savvy, but I clearly don't understand antennas and RF as well as I'd like. I purchased a home, and in the attic I found a TV antenna. It looks to be a pretty normal all-band tv...

    About a week ago I noticed my the ant tuner for my 706 mkIIg installed in my truck was making a clicking sound without any equipment powered up. I unplugged the 12VDC to the radio and the noise stopped. A day or two later, when I had some time, I tried to do some troubleshooting when I noticed...

    Does anyone's Pro-106 do this? (video)

    This only started happening after the Guilford County rebranding (yesterday). I programmed all 28 or so CCs into the scanner (already had my TGs programmed) and started listening - but only for a matter of seconds. Soon it started doing this stutter thing where it wouldn't seem to latch onto a...

    Pro 106 took a tumble off the dashboard

    My father owns a Pro 106 and had the idea to set it on the dashboard, but when he took off it tumbled off the dashboard and banged against the stick shift in his car and onto the floor. I tried reprogramming it because I had thought that maybe some buttons had gotten pressed on the way down and...

    I have come into 3 handsets, 2 are TK-3200s (8 channel models) and one is a TK-3200L (15 channel model.)
