    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.

They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Hello all,

My 996XT won't pick up a certain tower's control channel in Ohio MARCS... It says NFM. This was not an issue before the system underwent rebanding. It's frustrating because I use freescan to program the scanner. Anyone know how to help a digital scanner pick up a control channel?
