• 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:

New at this.

Have a 996, and have set all my Systems up as to modulation type as "Auto".

Heard that this might not be the best idea, as some freq's that are in their bandplan
as fm, might actually be nfm, and vice versa.

So, for the Mass State Police Trunked, do I want fm or nfm (for all) ?

How about also for the MSP, but Conventional mode ?

Auto is certainly the simpleset way for me to go, but if it picks the wrong fm or nfm mode, I certainly want to correct it, and put them in selectively.

Where would i find what it is actually using under "auto" ?

Where would I find listings for the correct mode to use ?
