• 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 am getting complaints for low feed volume. My scanner is turned up almost full blast and the input on the sound card mixer is at 100%. If I unplug the cord from scanners external speaker the scanner is F'n LOUD!

I am not sure what else to do.

I would check the cable first? Do you have another input you can try? Scanner volume shouldn't ever be towards 100%. Depending on scanner type, 50% is more typical.

Are you streaming with a 396XT or 396T by any chance? I can hear a clicking sound at end of transmission that could be a DC component riding on the audio. Those scanners will do that solved by using an isolation transformer to block the DC.

Possible solution

I had similar problems, it's almost impossible to setup the audio out of the soundcard/motherboard.
On a hunch I attached a USB Stereo Audio Adapter and resolved all my problems.
Just use the Mic input.
Set the scanner volume to a minimum to reduce noise. (Do some testing.)

You can listen to my feed, and hear how it sounds.

I purchased it from this website, but I am sure you can find it anywhere.
