• 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 have the HP and really like it except the local police are down in the mud. All others are fine. I live about 2 miles from the police tower. Has anyone else have this problem on their systems?

Distance from the tower won't affect the volume level. I would guess that either that agency has their deviation turned way down or that the RRDB has the PD as FM but the agency has switched to NFM. (More likely the latter.)

Is the channel set to NFM in the scanner? If not, it probably should be (all PD and Business VHF and UHF must be NFM by 1/1/2013, so they've probably already made the switch).

Providing specific channel info could help diagnose.

I believe the narrowbanding mandate on the UHF T band channels has been rescinded, since all users are supposed to be moved off that freq range...Mike
