    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:

This will probably be best answered by UPman but I am sure others might be able to answer. Will there ever be an upgrade for the 296/796 to get the audio to somewhere closer to where it should be on the digital radios. I am thinking of an upgrade for what is being done on the 396/996 or will myself and everyone else that owns one have to live with the horrible audio on a P25 system. Yes I know you can make adjustments but they don't help. Would like to get audio that come from a 396 on a 296. Any thoughts would be great.

I have a 296 as well as a 396 and 996. I don't find the audio really any worse on the 296, are you talking about the decoding as opposed to the audio?

I have a 296d and the audio on any digitally modulated signal is ethier too loud or to low. The decoding works fine. I just hope there will be an update that will help in tracking the STAR's system here in Va.
