• 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:

Not picking up any radio talk from Flower Mound in the last couple of months, but plenty in Highland Village and Lewisville.

Anyone else with this issue that live in Flower Mound?? Doug (KC5EIB) programmed my Radio Shack Pro-106 several years ago. Cannot get a hold of him, he is the Broadcaster for Flower Mound.
Didn't know if Flower Mound has changed there frequencies.

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks and Merry Christmas

John

Flower Mound has moved to the new Denton County P25 system and the PD is operating in the X2-TDMA mode which that scanner can not pick up. FD is not TDMA at this time and could be received on that radio.

Not to be nit-picky, but I'm pretty sure they are APCO P25 Phase 2 TDMA, not X2-TDMA.

Hey Doug,

Can you email me at: johnhook2621@gmail.com

I would like to set down with you and have you show me how to down load frequencies. I have bumped into you several times, and also you let me borrow your NASCAR headsets one year. I did appreciate that!! You did everything for me when I purchased the scanner so I would like learn.I don't have the software in my computer or the cable. I guess I need to buy the USB cable from radio shack before they close down or Fry's Electronics.

Please email so we can talk, Thanks
John
