• 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:

You might want to ask the radio people who issued it to you, because it might not be programmed for scan, and if it is there are several buttons that they could have programmed to make it scan.

I assumed that would be evident from reading the manual. I was wrong. H. L. Mencken, and others, apparently were right.

Try a 2 sec press on each button. Usually the buttons can be dual function, with short press = 0.25 sec or long press = 1 sec, or something like this. If your team was not issued a pager, then they expect the radio to be on the dispatch channel 100%. There may not be a scan button programmed.
