• 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:

34032 is a talk group that does some strange things on my 396t.

First, the scanner won't lock onto it while its scanning. Either in ID or SEARCH mode.

Second. I fired up the 245 and sure enough it hit on the talk group a time or two, but the audio was just hash. Ok.. Digital then.

Third. Went back to the 396T and played with the threshold level on the digital control. Nothing. Won't lock into the digital portion of the signal.

Can anyone confirm or deny what I am hearing and seeing on my scanner?
