• 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 am trying to monitor this but get errors. A screen shot is attached of the errors. Do I have a setting wrong? Thanks.

What are you using to send the data to DSD?
That is to say, what software are you using to
tune in the frequency? SDR#, HDSDR, etc?

When I used SDRsharp, I had a helluva time tuning
in for DSD. It was tedious but you need to fool with the
gain, turn off all filtering, play with volume, until you get
it right

Do you need the discriminator audio or from the earphone jack? This unknown department is not on alot and the CW ID is to fast for me.

Discriminator audio is a must - nothing less for digital signals. Just record a raw audio file in DSDPlus by starting up DSDPLus and pressing 'R' to record raw audio. Record it for a minute or two. Then press "R" again to stop the recording of raw audio.

Find that raw audio file in your DSDPlus folder -- In case you have more than one raw audio file already, it will be the the latest timestamp. It'll look something like this:

DSDPlus-Raw-Input_2018-10-05@000444.wav

Make it available somewhere that you can provide a link to so that it can be downloaded by others.

Thanks for the help. The signal is weak today. The frequency is 151.67. I have not found anything in the FCC database. I'm in Trumbull County Ohio. Have checked in PA also since I'm not far from the boarder.
