• 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've pluged in 20 frequencies in the 300 range in my first attempt to scan Mil Air. When I scan that system I stop on the first frequency, and hang on the carrier wave. I must press scan to move to the next frequency where I hang again. I've set a 2 second delay, and played with the squelch, but to no avail. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Al

It could be interference from nearby computers or any other type of electrical device. Also it would help to know where you are from, so some of the other MilAir Scannists can help you out with more than 20 Frequencies. You also need to read the MilComm section in the WIKI. It is very helpful with what steps to use when scanning and it is loaded with MilAIr frequencies and other groups to join. In the mean time just lockout the frequencies that are hanging up and your scanner will continue to scan. I hope this helps.

I don't think it's electrical interference. Whether I'm home, or out and about I just get a hiss on all the Mil Air frequencies. I'm in the ZBW area about 5 miles from Boston.

Slide over to the Maryland Forum and jump in the Sticky Thread for MILAIR III. Those guys are great. They have a wealth of knowledge to give.
