• 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:

Okay, I haven't seen a thread on this since September, though there's been a few folks posting on the older threads that they can't find Glassboro. What the heck happened here? The database info doesn't seem to be correct - even the new data.

Does anyone know what happened to Glassboro? Did they switch to some encrypted digital channel? I haven't heard any consistent Glassboro traffic for a few months (outside of some maintenance stuff from time to time).

What's up???

Have you tried 460.0625 DPL 703 in NFM?

I have a BCD396XT. This is perplexing, as Glassboro is a hotbed of police activity. In tracking all the zones in South Jersey, Glassboro by far had the most hits. I'm only a few miles away over near Woodbury, and I have a dipole on the roof up quite high. Now, I get nothing, and I kind of miss it. Everything else comes in quite clear, even Camden, Philly, and Washington Twp which are all much further out.

Any thoughts on how I can get them back?

Maybe I've got something set wrong?

This is what I have from ProScan:

Channel Name: Glassboro PD
Frequency: 460.0625
Number Tag: None
Audio Type: Analog Only
Tone: 703
Tone L/O: Not checked
P25 NAC: Search (this defaults every time I set the channel up, I don't know why).
Record: Not checked
Mod.: NFM
Lockout: Not checked
Pri: Not checked
Att.: Not checked

Any thoughts?

Here are the manually checked settings:

System: Glouc Zone 7
Name: Glouc Zone 7
Lockout: Unlocked
Hold Time: 0 Sec
Delay Time: 2 Sec
Audio AGC: Analog OFF, Digital OFF
P25 Waiting Time: 0ms

Channel: Glassboro PD
Frequency: 460.0625
Audio Type: Analog Only
Modulation: NFM
Attenuator: OFF
Priority: OFF
Lockout: Unlocked
Volume Offset: +3

I'm six miles from the antenna. I have a dipole on the roof elevated about 45 feet. All other Gloucester County zones come in just fine. Glassboro did come in fine before the frequency change.

Turn on the attenuation and see how that works. Gloucester County has an MDT frequency on 460.075 (PL 165.5, 162.2, or 159.8 - it goes between the three (mainly the first two) when I check it) and you might be closer to that antenna. It may be causing interference with the 460.0625 (which is why Zone 1 switched to 453.8125).

Thanks Joe. Unfortunately, that didn't work. Maybe because of this MDT thing I'm out of luck? Do you have any other thoughts or ideas that I could try?

Seems like you're out of luck thanks to that MDT channel. The only thing I can suggest is maybe pointing your antenna towards Glassboro. Otherwise seems you have it programmed correctly.
