• 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:

The other day I was in San Rafael and Sausalito trying to monitor the system and my 796 would not capture the control channel. I could hear things conventionally. I only programmed the EAST zone system.
The freqs were all programmed as trunked, bank set as a UHF system with the base,spacing and offsets set as listed on RR.com. Anybody see anything I did wrong? or is this even system working?

The system has strong signal levels in nearly all of the county (even south county without the Tiburon tower online).
I am assuming you set the tables up with two frequency ranges, this is what confusses most people.
