• 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:

Digital is just another type of modulation. Analog is what your old scanner could hear.. Scanners can receive one or both analog and digital. Your problem is the new type of memory allocation used in some newer scanners. It can be very confusing at first.

Thanks Mark! How do you like your PRO-106? I've only had mine for 3 days, so far ,so good.
I like it just fine! Seems to do everything I want it to do - but I'm still learning new features so it probably does even more than I need! lol
