• 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:

There is a town that uses a frequency of 460.20000 PL 88.5 and there is a town in another county that uses the same freq but a different PL. I have the PL's programmed for both towns. Whenever both agencies talk at the same time, I get interference that causes the frequency to stop transmitting and I miss that part of the transmition. This happens on either frequency. Meaning, every time both freqs with different PLs are active I will not hear the town I'm listening to because of the interference cutting the audio out. I'm using the Pro-97 with the PLs programmed in, I tried using ATT on both freqs but I don't hear anything at all when I turned it on. I tried Locking out one freq but still happens. Is there anything I can do??

Yep, a directional antenna is about your only hope, and it may not completely cure the problem but it should help. The 2 transmitters are probably far enough away from each other that they don't interfere with each other, but you probably just happen to be about half way between them.
