• 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 BC125AT and I have noticed when I program repeaters with the Rx CTCSS, it will mute the squelch tail, but not all the time. Sometimes it go multiple transmissions and it won't catch the reverse burst and will leave the squelch tail audible. And it does this with all repeaters using CTCSS. However, my local sheriff department repeater uses DCS and that one will mute the squelch tail every single time no matter what. I'm pretty new to this stuff so I'm not sure if this is just a problem with this Uniden model or a problem with CTCSS reverse burst in general.

DCS uses an end tone to mute the audio.

CTCSS uses two (or three?) different "standards" of ending the CTCSS tone by shifting its phase.
I know that on 2-way radios when you selected the wrong "standard" (Motorola and non-Motorola and possible one more manufacturer) it will give an audiable squelch tail.
I don't know how Uniden have selected to tackle the problem but the result are probably not a 100% working squelch elimination.
