• 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:

I have recently purchased a Uniden BC396T and it was preloaded with YRPD. It seems like some districts will have lots of activity then the channel goes dead for over 8 hours. It seems to happen to district one the most. Is this normal or am I missing some frequency's or is the set-up incorrect. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I checked the RR Data base and I have all the TGID'S installed including 115. Thanks

2 Things come to mind. YRP uses MDTs for most of their calls....maybe that's why you don't hear much action sometimes. Also They patch their channels together, so if you are not hearing anything on Dist 1 for a while, it's probably patched with Dist 5.

Hi tonyta , welcome to RadioReference. :)

Another scenario that may be happening is that YR trunked system does Control Channel rotation.
Since you did not program the scanner, make sure that all four channel freq.'s are entered.
They may inadvertantly neglected to program all of them for you. :confused:
They rotate daily , and I've seen rotation even twice or more in a single day.

Hi Guy's thanks for the replys. Like everything it's a bit of a learning curve, last time I had a scanner was over 15 years ago when they were all on single channels. I used BCTool and the BearCat BCD396T Director as a software to check the whats loaded in the scanner and everything seems entered. I found BC Tool to be neat because it has a record feature. Last night I listened to YRP for a couple of hours to see whats going on in the snow storm and it just seemed to0 quiet for such a night. Any other software out there or places to get frequency or channel updates. Thanks
