• 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:

Does anyone know if it is possible to setup the BCD996XT to recognize tones in "Tone-Out Standby" and then open the squelch to hear the transmission and then return to scanning "Tone-Out Standby"?

There is a delay setting. It should return to standby after tones activate the alert.

Myself I like the Infinte setting. Sometimes the dispatcher is a little slow on getting the info out plus if it is for more than single engine response you can have three to four units getting toned out for a call.If it is back into stand by too soon you can miss the call.
