    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:

My Yaesu vx-6 squelch stays open.

I've had my vx-6 for serveral years now and when I stopped using it in the spring it was fine. Turned it on the other day and had the hiss of an open squelch. Got out the manual and went to item 50 and set the squelch to S2 and the hissing stopped but the busy green light stays on. Reset the radio also and no difference. Any ideas?
