    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:

396t being choppy?

hey guys, so i have a uniden 396t. Im in walker county, Texas. I have it setup with only the control channel scanning in its own system. When it picks up a voice signal, it locks like usual but the sound is real choppy, it sounds really clear, and the signal is strong as my pro-97 doesn't sound choppy on the same transmission, so i don't know what to think or do next. Any advice is greatly appreciate, thanks in advance.

double check that Close Call, Priority, and weather are set to off

normally if any of these are on the scanner will be choppy every 3 seconds ro so to check them for activity

thanks guys i did all that and it is less choppy. I live in walker county texas and have it setup has a p25 system and i only have the control channel in the system. I have it on scan mode and it will show the "dat" every couple of seconds and hold for a bout a second, then it will "nfm" where the frequency usually is. Not sure if that means anything? this is my first "high tech" scanner. Im gonna go through and program all the id groups and freqs when i get to it, but i do have it on ID/search now so it should pick up everything that comes across correct? Thanks for yalls help.

If it is on ID search, you should hear all comms on the system. You might also try turning the Attenuator ON to see if that helps the choppy audio. You never know....
