• 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:

Could someone tell me how fast the Extreme Option does limit scans or conventional discovery? Say for example if I scan from 144-148MHz looking for active HAMS how long will it take to scan that spread.

On Conventional Discovery it's fast and only limited by QRM which can be Avoided (locked out) until the scan loop is continous. Of course breaking the scan segment into smaller bites of the band say 1~5 MHz at a session will speed things up more.

Using the default step size of 5 KHz, mine scans that range in just under 4 seconds (3.6 - 3.8).

Thank you guys, Going to be much better than using my ft-857d, especially for finding active repeaters when traveling and having the convenience of the CTCSS showing.

WILL IT SHOW THE CTCSS scanning ham repeaters?

Thanks
