• 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 searched the manual, but didn't find anything. Is there any way to clear the FIPS codes that are programmed into the pro-96? Also, will the scanner decode the 1050 hz tone from the NWS if there are no fips codes programmed? Or will it only decode this alert tone in the weather priority mode? The manual says that it will decode the tone with the wx channel programmed as the priority channel, but I am wanting to be able to put the scanner into standby and still rx alerts.

Thanks for the help

You can lock out any existing FIPS manually or you can go in and change existing codes to 00000 (I've only tryed that once) - If you have WIN96 you can clear them out very easy. To catch the 1050 Hz tone you should have WX as priority.
