• 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:

Hello, I am useing a Radio Shack Pro651 scanner and it is programed with ARC500 software.
Theres alot about scanning that is still new to me.
I have the Chelsea Law 152.72000 frequency programed is the scanner .I get a strong signal showing on the signal strength meter but no audio at all , no noise or any thing . The light on the scanner will light up as it should when receiving a signal.
Scanner showes P1D -FM-and sometimes the FM flashes over to DG.
It also showes that it is in Convential and asigned to a scan list.
Maybe this scanner want pick up there signal any more due to some changes, just not aware if that may be the case.
Any one have any idea what may be going on ????

Chelsea is covered by the Shelby County Sheriff for law enforcement. Shelby SO uses a Project 25 Phase 2 VHF system. There is no one specific frequency that covers only Chelsea. Unless your scanner can decode P25 Phase 2 and track the control channel commands and I don't think it will; you will not hear anything other than digital noise that is on a 6.25khz offset from the main 12.5khz channel.

TNX jfarr318 for the information.. I sort of thought that may be the case.
O well, now I at least know whats going on .
I guess I will just take them out of the scanner. I believe that Radio Shack Pro 651 is only a Phase 1 scanner.
TNX again , and take care.
