    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 am waiting for the arrival of my new 396 digital scanner, my first ever digital model.
Question, I have a couple of freqs I will monitor that are APCO 25. Both are conventional freqs and are NOT part of a trunk system. From what I have read, do I enter these freqs as conventional FM, or do I enter something different. If it is conventional FM, does the scanner automatically detect and decode the digital audio?
Thanks for your replies to the digital newbie. :)

Just enter them as conventional. As long as you don't program a CTCSS or DCS tone (or tone search) on the channel, the scanner will automatically detect and decode the P25 signal.
