• 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:

Whenever my Pro-96 picks up traffic on 856.23750 in C'field, it doesn't seem to want to release the freq. I start picking up traffic from surrounding TGs and have to hit the scan button to release. I'm curious if anyone else is experiencing this issue.

Same issue with my 106 and 197.

856.2375
and
856.2125

I was hoping it would fix itself this time. Happens about every 4 to 6 months. Almost never gets fixed unless someone hits the reset @ the radio shop. I'll reach out to my guy who knows a guy, who knows a guy at the radio shop and try to get it fixed.

Here is a little tip to make your scanner usable when this happens. Set up priority scan on a blank frequency (like one of the weather frequencies not used in the area).

If you can, set it to check every 6-8 seconds. Now if your scanner gets stuck the priority check forces the scanner to hang up, check for traffic on the priority channel, then back to the data channel and see if there is still traffic on your talk group.

The down side, when listening to traffic your going to hear breaks in the audio.
