• 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:

Amtrak Michigan Line

I'm using a Uniden Bearcat BC125AT, and I have the Amtrak Michigan Line programmed into it. Although the AML Train Director comes through clear as day, all the way from Chicago, I have difficulty hearing the train crews, even though they're a quarter-mile away. I thought it might be the frequency because there are two on file (CHI-KAL and KAL-DET), but I'm just not sure.

Is there anything I can do on my end to try to get better clarity?
