• 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:

I have a BC T8 at work that is on 24/7 for the last 3 years. It got stuck on a freq. with no sound the other day. Would not scan. I turned it off and back on and it was OK for about 5 min and then the same Thing??? locks up no squelch sound, just a slite buzz with the Volume all the way up.
Any ideas.....is it toast....
Thanks guys

Hmmm,a scanner on 24/7 for 3 years would probably start to fail sooner or later.Was it brand new when you started to leave it on? It sounds like its either tired and needs a rest or it's slowey becoming toast,if it hasn't already
