    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:

All,
First, I beg your patience in my journey! Quick question. I have successfully added several local conventional objects. I am getting hits on all of them, with strong signals, although I do not have any audio on any. My SQ is at 12PM, my antenna is connected. Any help for a newbie would be appreciated. One more data point, I have reintialized the factory settings.

Just out of curiousity, what scanner? My 410, 197, and 106 all scan with audio with the USB cable in the PC/IF jack. So does my 800.
Just wondering,
Larry

Same here with my Pro-197 and PSR-500.

600. Take care!
Most unusual given that the PSR-600, PSR-500, Pro 197, and Pro 106 are essentually the same scanner. Wonder what it is with your PSR-600?

Of course none of this scanner family will allow audio if the cable is mistakenly put in the headphone jack instead of the PC/IF jack:roll:

Larry,
The USB cable was plugged into the port on the back of radio, which also serves at the port for an exnternal speaker.
