• 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:

How do I set the warning beep to start before the recording stopped screen comes up? The only beep I get is when the scanner stops receiving and displays the warning screen. I want the beeping to start before that happens so I can intervene before it cuts out. I tried 3400 in voltage but it won't go higher.

You're shortening run time doing that. The voltage setting tells the scanner when the batteries are "dead". A lower setting will let the scanner run longer before it displays the warning and shuts down.

You can't change the battery voltage interval between getting the warning and scanner shutdown. Get higher capacity batteries if you can, or plug the scanner into a USB charger to run it off external power.
