    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:

Hello!
I have been programming my 996P2 using the frequencies from RadioReference and using FreeScan to upload and download them. On the issue of setting the audio (ALL, DIGITAL, ANALOG), Should I leave all the audio set on ANALOG? The reason I'm asking is that at first, after programming the 996P2, I start scanning, and when the scanner reach one of the talkgroups, I would hear the start of a conversation but was cut off. The audio settings were set on ALL. I downloaded the sites, etc., from the 996P2 and changed all the audios from ALL to ANALOG and uploaded it back to the99P2. Now I can hear the whole conversation. Should I do the same on all the other sites?
I am new in this hobby, and I want the best performance this scanner has to offer.
Thank you.

It depends on whether you have digital stuff programmed to scan. If you do, ANALOG won't work. Ideally, you should set the digital talkgroups or channels to digital, and the analog to analog.

I agree. Also in the case of conventional analog channels in FreeSCAN, if you set the Audio Type to "All" instead of "Analog Only" you will not be able to set a PL or DPL if one is being used on that channel. As soon as you select "All" for the Audio Type it sets the Tone to "None."
