• 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:

First off I must thank user spooney for the Hp-1 data base updates that I could not seem to master, went by today, and a great scanner user and I wish the world had more people like him.
That aside, back to the topic.
I was gone for most of the summer and fall from Indiana, and when I got back right before Thanksgiving I had lost Indiana Safe-T network and my home county of Warrick transmissions. I did learn this was from rebanding.
A lot of BS aside I forgot to mention that in the first few days I got back I had to replace my home network router. I went with a ASUS RT-ac66r. This is a dual band router that works in the 2.4 and 5ghz ranges.
Great ac router but I forgot that 5ghz has wiped out scanner reception in my home before.
More testing will be ongoing, but the pro 97 when brought downstairs it lost EDACS coverage, and I get computer interference on 156.900 on HP-1 and PRO 97.

Sorry to hear you are still having problems. If you went to the overlook park by the dam and couldn't receive the Henderson tower then I would have to believe something is wrong with the scanner. We should have tested more when you were at my house.

spooney, you did right by me. Before I came back from Sw Louisana I was picking up APCO 25 from the areas that had not been rebanded due to Katria. Just a few days before.
No it looks like more and more like the digital section of the scanner has failed.
The multiple antenna's I have tried and taking out of my home should have worked.
Besides spooney, you need to get radiation therapy over so we can keep you around.
