    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've noticed that reception of Metro's system (I'm mostly listening to the A side) has been spotty since rebanding. I've got a BC296D and BC396T with current firmware - loss of quality on both - located in Davidson Co.

Anybody else having similar problems?


Thanks-

Pro-106 doing ok. If you are maybe close to a tower try using the ATT setting.
Often when I am near the downtown tower I get drop outs and when I turn ATT on it clears up.'The strong signal overdrives the radio's front end.

Thanks for the tip, I've turned on the attenuator function - will see if that makes a difference.

I've noticed the CC isn't coming in clearly and that I'm having more problems with a few specific TGID's (20016 B1) than others. I'm using the same antennas as before and the system sounded fine before rebanding.

Had similar problems a few years ago that cleared up on their own. I'm curious if anybody has heard about adjustments being made to the system or radio shop traffic, etc.
