    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 dont think its encryption as it changes tones alot. Is there any way to record it and put it on here. It may just be a local problem as I havent heard anything like that up here in W. Central Oh. Hoser

It Sounds Like It Is Scrambled I Thought It Was Blocked It May Be Towers Being Crossed I Dont Know. We Have Several Towers On In The Same County With In 15 Miles Of Each Other. I Have The State Fire Marshal In My Talk Groups And Have Never Heard Them I Know They Are Scrambled But Other People Tell Me They Hear Them So I Thought That Was What I Was Hearing If Anyone Has An Idea Let Me Know. By The Way Sometimes All The Traffic On The Towers Is Ok And Works Fine This Is An Inteminted Problem.

On my new Pro-96, it will go to a channel with traffic on a Deshler tower, (NW Ohio), but when the traffic is finished, it stays on with static, almost like squelch noise, but squelch is off. I tried ATT, but that seemed to block everything.

Any help?
