• 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:

end code

On my 250d it has a setting for end code. Whats that for??
This is from my bc250d owners manual, (Motorola), When this function is disabled, the radio looks for squelch before returning to the control channel instead of waiting for the disconnect tone. Only in rare instances will you need to adjust the default settings. The conditions to return to control channels depends on whether a control signal is present or not.

I have never found a time when I needed to use this, I just leave it alone.

I don't know about you, but on my 246T when listening to EMS on there, I have the End Code on and when they're done keying up, it's kinda like a soft key down, instead of hearing the kerchunk of squelch at the end of the transmission. Other than that though, I don't know what else it does.

That is exactly what it is, just like reverse burst on a commercial radio. When it detects the end code it mutes the receiver and tells the scanner / radio that the current transmission is finished so the radio / scanner can return to the control channel for further direction. If you have it to ignore the scanner will sit on that voice channel until the carrier drops which means you might miss the beginning of the next transmission on a different voice channel, not to mention that annoying squelch tail.
