• 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:

It appears that your county is still conventional. But, if I were you, I would ask in the New York state forum. Just another thought, do you have another scanner to use? That BC211 is an old model:) Maybe it decided to stop working.

No, you do not need a "digital" antenna:) There is no such thing<GRIN> Ask in your state forum. They will have more knowledge. Your public safety may have changed to digital. Your scanner will not do digital transmissions.
Good Scanning,
Larry
