• 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 picking up some stray noises on my newly acquired PRO-2030. I am using this scanner to provide my scanner feed to RR. It only monitors Lawrence County Sheriff (460.4250), Lawrenceburg Fire Department (154.0250), Lawrence County SKYWARN (146.6550), Lawrence County EMS (155.400), Lawrence County VFD (154.3700) and Lawrenceburg Fire Department (155.1600). My problem is that I have been getting some strange sounds on the Sheriffs frequency (460.4250). I did not get this on the Uniden BC 560 XLT scanner I was using before, nor do I pick it up on the PRO-163 in my truck. I do hear regular traffic on that channel just fine and the odd sounds are really sporadic and random. Sometimes I will here it several times in a few minutes other times I may not hear it for hours. Please help me identify and eliminate. I have attached a clip of the noise. For what its worth the scanner is connected to a Radio Shack 20-176 (sputnik style) antenna mounted in my attic and new Radio Shack coax. I did change to the RS antenna and coax at the same time I started using the new scanner.

That almost sounds like faint data bursts. Have you searched that frequency to see if there are is a distant digital channel on same frequency. You have an antenna on the 2030? Will it squelch out?

Thanks,
I will check for digital channels on same frequency. Yes, I do have an external antenna connected.
