    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:

So I am looking a getting a Uniden BCD396XT scanner. The frequency range that this scanner covers fits what I need (Northeastern NC and Southeaster VA (Hampton Roads area)). I am using the FreeScan Software to start setting up systems and groups for it, so once I purchase the scanner, I can plus in and program instead of waiting for a while. For Pitt County NC and other Counties that use the 800 NC VIPER System (DEC and HEX), how to I program those talkgroups into a scanner. Be advised, some channels are 700, some are 800. I am stuck doing this. Do I need to program all the NC VIPER Channels into a system and just go with that? My goal is to have a bank or group for FIRE/EMS and another for Law Enforcement, that way I can turn one set off and on when I want to listen.

Thanks everyone!!!
