    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:

Hi Folks,

Background:
Out of the blue my wife buys me a BCT15X for Christmas. I have never owned a scanner before and the learning curve is near vertical. A few days ago I find proscan and it's bandscope function.

Question:
Why am I getting NOAA from Pensacola that is normally on 162.4 on 923.8 NFM? Did someone modify an old phone as a repeater?

Just Curious

Depending on how close you are to the NOAA transmitter site, you could possibly be picking up a harmonic frequency since the 923 Mhz frequency is very close to the 5th harmonic of the WX frequency.
