    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:

My questar gas , specifically blue stakes frequency just switched from a conventional 800 frequency to a possible dt3 control channel according to my 536hp. What settings do I need to monitor this it hangs on it a lot I am DMR upgraded, I have the delay and hold time on 5 secs, but it holds longer than that and won't resume scanning right away, also haven't heard traffic on it yet, any suggestions?

You could also try single frequency dmr. If there is only one frequency used then it won't be a con+ or cap+ system. The additional air time for a single frequency dmr could be from GPS data on the units.

Questar just added an additional system as well it's also DT3 sounds like the Motorola type 2 system it's being faded out , the first DT3 system is one frequency control channel which stays on one frequency, this new one is a system of 5 frequencies and the control channel moves around, both are different licenses, and both control channels sound alike, the new one with 5 channels is site 7 the other with one frequency is site 18..

So I've added them as trunked both DMR one frequency and MOTOTRBO as well as conventional, I'm not sure how to get any additional information until they start using it
