• 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:

I have noticed that myself. There were a few stray hits on the other sites, but the site with the correct LCN has a majority of the traffic.

Went out and did some work on an unknown system in my area. It turned out to be capacity plus. The LCN finder found 0 channels. The problem was they had nine frequencies licensed. We were able to determine what frequencies were actually in use, set up multiple sites with different LCN assignments, and determine the LCN of the system, while the LCN finder still read 0/9. Both of us had a 436 and neither radio was successful in finding any LCN. Luckily each of us also brought along a 396XT, so we could tell what frequency we were receiving, to confirm the LCN was working.It would be nice to have frequency display on trunked systems.

Glad you hear someone else has had a similar experience. New one for me.
10-4 on the frequency display.
