    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:

Is there anyone who monitors the Coral Springs/Margate (Mot Type II,analog) Public safety system in Broward? For the past month or so, I'm having a problem with frequency 853.8750. It seems after units, police & fire, are finished transmitting there is an open mic sound & I have to move off the ID I'm listening to in order to clear it. This happens when I monitor in trunked mode as well as if I monitor the system in conventional mode on my BCD396XT & PRO94.

I haven't had this issue prior to a month ago and I've made the necessary programming adjustments for rebanding. It seems to be with this 1 frequency. I didn't know if this had to do with the changes with the county system (which they haven't been a part of) or if it's just my scanners or location.

This only happens when any of the other frequencies are the control channel. If 853.8750 is the CC then the issue doesn't occur.

Anyone have any information? Thanks in advance.

Not much help but just confirming you are not alone. There is an open carrier on 853.8750 when it is not the CC. Different scanners handle it differently. Not having a problem on newer ones but it was giving my BC246T fits. Glad you posted, thought it was dying on me.

I changed some settings on my 396xt and it works better now.
