• 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:

Is there a way to force the talk groups to digital...

an all P-25 system set to auto

What I'm experiencing is it sometimes starts out on a talk group and shows DG and voice is there like it's supposed to. Then it "switches" to VC right in the middle sometimes with no voice... Sometimes it just shows VC and no voice..

Any ideas or suggestions

Thanks

By definition, a "P25 Auto" TSYS has its talk groups forced to digital. If the radio is showing "VC" with no voice, it means the digital voice signal was "lost".

I've had that happen on my PSR500 also, only it happens more often at the beginning of the transmission and then after a few seconds the voice picks up. I think this has been discussed in other threads and described as locking on to the control channel, but then will not switch to the voice channel. I have not figured out why this is occurring but it is most often on only one transmitter in a multicasting system. It seems to be better after changing from multisite off to multisite stat and CC check every scan. My 996 picks up the voice fine while the 500 is trying to acquire the voice channel.
