• 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:

We’ve discovered a problem with the Library files related to importing NXDN systems that have no RAN assigned, like this one: Howard Communications Trunking System, Columbia, Maryland - Scanner Frequencies

The site RAN is supposed to be “ANY”, but the Library incorrectly sets it to 0 (zero).

This is caused by a bug in the Library conversion process. It is not a problem with the RR data, the PC software, or the scanners’ firmware.

A library rebuild will be scheduled for tonight (15 Dec). A new version (500) will be available tomorrow AM (16 Dec).

In the meantime, you should verify any NXDN system sites that you import from the scanner’s library data, whether via the PC app or in the scanner. If it says “RAN: 00”, you might want to check it against RadioReference. Or, just change it to “ANY” in the PC software or via the scanner’s UI.

Correction: it affects all NXDN systems. They'll all be set to "RAN: 00".

For now, it would be best to manually set them to "ANY" after import. (You could set them to specific, known RAN values if you want.)
