• 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:

Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA)

I have a scanner in Milwaukee (just south of Portland) and when I try and listen to Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) I get this beeping that sounds like the button noise when you play with the scanner settings, but I turned the setting in the scanner to off and still I get the noise and I’m not even touching the scanner. It is a BCD996T and I have it hooked up to a sort of low end Discone from Radio Shack on the roof. It just drives me crazy because the feed from Radio Reference does not have the beeping so I know I’m doing something wrong…
Any suggestions?

Easier to Read BCD996T/UBCD996T Digital Scanner Manual

Sounds like you may have an alert set for that system.

Go to menu, program system, select your system, edit system options, emergency alert, set alert tone, select off.
