• 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 have a BCD325P2 with a RS 800mhz antenna. A few days ago I was able to briefly listen to 155.1300 which is a conventional frequency. A member has been trouble shooting with me to see why I can't pull this frequency in. Please help

jamaal0299,

You need to provide more detailed information. There are far to many possible reasons to just guess blindly.

EXample: Did you make any programming changes to your scanner, from the time you last heard E. Cleveland to when you stopped hearing it? If no, then it's not a scanner issue.

One thing I noticed when I looked at E. Cleveland's PD listing in the RR Database. There's a note that says they sometimes use Speech Inversion Scrambling. It could be that they've decided to use Scrambling full time. Which means you won't hear them.

Another possibility is that they could have moved to the GCRCN system. Their FD is already on GCRCN.

The list goes on.

Provide some additional details as to what you have or have not changed. Hopefully you will get some answers.

Out of the box I first programmed EC PD and listen to them and then I used Butel software to program scanner and could no longer hear it, so I reset scanner and could hear EC scetchly though. I know about the channel 100 that they use and have listen to them for years. I am less than a mile away. Settings for EC: 155.1300 - Audio type: Analog Only - CTCSS: 110.9 Modulation :NFM - Priority : On Hold time : 0 Delay time:2

Can you hear NOAA WX on 162.55? Can you move around to find a better location for hearing the PD? If you are only a mile away I can't see why you are having a problem. Is ATT off?

Maybe it's too strong. Try turning ON the attenuation.
I had that problem with a local VHF station on my BCD996P2. It was terrible on the scanner but was fine on a commercial handheld.

The FCC data for KQA214 ECPD shows a repeater on 423.1125 and one on 424.0625.
I have no idea what that's about but you might give a listen there.
