• 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 program a channel for digital only ? A department I listen to uses both analog with a PL and digital on the same frequency and I want to hear the digital transmissions only.

Same for a trunked system. If I know the talkgroup is digital, can I set the software so it decodes faster?

If you have access to the BCD996T owners manual look at page # 87 under 'Setting the audio type'. Hope this helps. This is a great radio but there is admittedly a learning curve compared to the older type radios. Good luck.
