• 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:

Hello. Great site and forum, thank you.

I got my wife the above scanner for the holiday. I have been successful programming in the local things she wants to listen to. I have 41 channels init but while scanning, we keep getting the following readout with a loud annoying stutter sound. The display shows "Hi FOUND" with the "Hi" offset from the word and slightly above left on the screen.

Lockout does nothing and one has to manually hit scan each time only to have this happen over and over again. We have had periods of hours where it does not do this and seems to scan the frequencies normally.

Any ideas. Google and forum searches have not really produced much for me. Thanks.
