• 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:

It's an EDACS narrowband system. Do you have it programed as standard EDACS or EDACS narrowband in the scanner? That'll make a difference. Otherwise, try scanning the frequencies conventionally and see if you can hear anything, especially a control channel.

A Pro-96 will not decode FPL's half-rate EDACS control channel. GRE never put narrow EDACS (a slower control channel scheme) into the Pro-96 operating firmware, and probably will not considering the age of the product. You would have to program in the discrete voice channels at the site you're interested in (lock out the control channel) and scan those in conventional. Newer scanners may decode narrow EDACS.

Also remember that the control channel changes almost every day. I listen conventional with my 96 and do not miss much.

do they use their vhf or other conventional frequencies for anything interesting?
