• 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:

Not hearing a lot these days......

Seems like we've been hearing less and less on our scanner over the last year or so. Is this due to them changing systems possibly? Or, maybe we need to re program?? I have no clue how to set it up, I purchased this scanner for my husband several years ago for Christmas and he has been complaining for months that he isn't hearing what he used too on it. It is a Pro 96 from Radio Shack, they programmed it for me when I bought it. Any thoughts??

Well, one thing comes to mind......radio shack programmed it for you. What do you have programmed into the scanner? State, county, cities? Without knowing what, we can't really help. Some things that could have happened in the time that you got the radio, and I sold my 96 3 years ago, are rebanding of trunked systems, conventional frequencies changed, and the radio is not up to date on all of that. Post where you live, and what you're monitoring. We'll try to help.
HTH,
