• 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:

173.1625 NAC 156 is active "in the clear" this morning. Very loud signal in Fremont...possibly up on Mt. Allison/Monutment Peak. It seems to be linked to 172.2125 as they are both active at the same time, but the .2125 is barely readable.

Also hearing P25 on 173.475 NAC 156. Might be related, but coming in real weak.

Now I'm hearing 172.2125 very loud...as a control channel (I think). I can hear encrypted transmissions with a PL of 67.0, which seems odd.

IF you are not set to P25 [using Auto] sometimes it goes analog and logs 67.0
Set that channel to P25 and you should get the correct NAC
