• 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:

Somehow, my Cleveland County OKWIN site for Norman is scanning as NFM, when all the other channels for OKWN show the primary control channel under the ID Scan line that scrolls across the screen. How do I change the site from NFM to the primary control channel? I've looked and can't find how to edit that option. And I hope I've explained it correctly.

Hold on any channel and press Func then 6(disp). Press Hold to resume.

That allowed me to change from NFM to nothing on the screen, which also changed all the other channels from showing the primary control channel to nothing. Not exactly what I wanted to do. But thanks anyway.

It will display NFM if it does not have good reception of that control channel. Try moving the radio or antenna to improve reception, then the frequency should display. There is no setting to control this.

That's probably the answer, since I'm north of the Norman Site range, and I'm not using a base antenna. Thanks for the info. Appreciate it.
