• 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:

I am having difficulty figuring out how to hear a VHF Conventional Channel that has now been switched to "digital." Is there a setting that needs to indicate a digital channel? All I hear is modem like noise.

A 500 should autodetect P25 signals and decode. You can try to force P25 decoding by setting the frequency to (in the squelch tone settings) NAC Search.

If that doesn't work then there may be a good chance that the channel your listening to is not P25 but another digital mode.

Since you don't say what frequency, we can only guess as to what has happened. Your question might get a better answer in the Indiana State forum further down the forums page.
