    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:

When scanning a multi-site system, does the PSR-600/Pro-197 only track talk groups on the first control channel it receives? On the new Fort Worth Regional P25 system it seems that radios on some talk groups show up on one site while others show up on a different site even though the 2 sites are in very close proximity to each other. Maybe this is done to balance the load on the system? For example, Fort Worth PD talk groups are on the Fort Worth Simulcast site while most (but not all) Public Works talk groups are on the Fort Worth Public Works (previously labeled as Tarrant County Simulcast) site. Whereas i can hear talkgroups from multiple sites on a Uniden 996T, I only seem to hear them from one site on a PSR-600.
