• 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:

Well seeing I dont know what your talking about, No. I have been listening to scanners for years but have only had a digital scanner since the new year.

My scanners are never turned off and I have lots of time for fooling around so maybe I can provide you with some info if you tell me what to do.

A NAC is a Network Access Code, which is basically like DCS/DPL for digital conventional channels. With a NAC, you could have a number of different "talkgroups" on one frequency. So MHFD could have NAC 1 as "Dispatch", NAC 2 as "Fireground", NAC 3 as "Hazmat Operations", etc. I don't know if the PRO96 decodes NACs - I know the Uniden radios don't. If you have a discriminator-tapped scanner, you could run kNACk, a program that is bundled with Unitrunker and specifically sniffs out the NAC.

Interesting. I dont have a tap on my pro96. I am just happy I can hear all the action again.
