• 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:

I have read here on the forum about adjusting the apco25 sound quality setting for use in detroit. can any body tell me what that setting should be set at. 533 seems to work almost any where but I am still having trouble with detroit and genesee co. was wondering if this setting will make a difference. some folks on RR say yes and some say no. any thoughts?

Detroit and Genesee are both simulcasts and all scanners have trouble with them. You have to be inside the area to receive it very well. The are designed not to go outside their area. My BC796D will not get Detroit very well (choppy) from where I'm at and my PRO96 on the southern boarder of Genesee Co. is choppy, but gets better if I get farther into the county. I don't think the audio adjustment will do much good, but some people have said a better antenna does work.

well I must still have some thing wrong with my programing as we were down to the police car show in ferndale and happened upon a person with a pro 96 who was listening to DPD and getting it very well. he took a look at my scanner and told me I didn't have all of detroits channels in and then flatly refused to tell me what I was missing. he said to go to RR and put that stuff in. That is what I have in the scanner. all the cc channels listed on RR. can't understand it. his was working great and mine was quiet. can't figure out what is wrong. I understand the problems with simulcast systems but would like mine to work as well as what this pro96 does at least.
