    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.

Firmware Update Worse!

I have to admit installing the update went off without a hitch thanks to Upman, but I have to say my 386T now sounds almost un-readable to the point I cannot even listen to the AP25 clearly? It sounded ok on the previous version when I bought it 3 months ago! I only listen to 2 channels on the Conventional Digital here in Lake County, FL. and 1 on analog. I noticed the AP25 error's that was 7-24 previously set on 11 is now 59 and higher on all 1-20 settings? also I noticed the full bar reception is now oscillating between 3 and full instead of the usual full bars! I am about to send the radio back to Uniden since I have left emails with Tech. Support and they DO NOT return emails? maybe my situation is isolated but you would think they would value there customers a little better after spending that kind of money for a Hand Held Scanner.

Anyone else getting more trouble after updating to the new firmare? and should I try to re-install the firmware again? the loader installed without any errors and then I installed the V2 firmware update without any errors? So I am assuming the update doesn't do my area any justice, I could deal with the audio before the update atleast I could understand the dispatcher all the time!
