    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:

BCT15X: Can you block nuisance frequencies?

I have some interference (on off-on off-on off) that comes in constantly from one particular frequency that I think is being generated by a wireless network device that I have. Can I program the scanner to block or ignore that one frequency?
Thanks.

If you can press the L/O button twice quickly on the keypad while the frequency is transmitting, you can permanently lock that frequency out.

If you know what the frequency is, you can go into the scanner menu and permanently lock it out that way also.....

If the frequencies in question have PL or DPL sub audible codes, utilize that feature and add them to the frequencies that you program in. This way you can still listen in on the frequencies without them being an interference problem.

Also diagnose where the interference is emanating from. One problematic one is routers as my Dlink will interfere in the marine band a lot. I moved the router a few feet to help eliminate the problem.

The interference was just static for a couple of seconds and off for a couple of seconds. I blocked about 3 or 4 separate frequencies. Maybe it was harmonics or something. It's working pretty good now.
Thanks.
