• 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:

Ok, LET me try this AGAIN

The specs say 25 to 54mhz, but mine for some reason is going between 1.0000 to 550 without any lock out. Weird...

It also is getting the 764 and up MHz range.

So what did i do to stumble upon this, or did i just get lucky and somehow unlock a bunch of locked out frequencies.

and maybe if i'm more lucky, Admins won't lock this forum and i can get my question answered because they thought i was upping my post count, (WHICH i don't give a BS about) instead of asking a valid question.

So someone please, help me out with this

I bet the specs say it covers a LOT more than 25 to 54 Mhz......

If you used Win96 to program the radio and checked the extended freq coverage box this might explain some things. Or not. I've never tested the radio's freq coverage after checking the box to see what it does.

Of course it won't work very well outside the spec'd freqs because the receiver filters aren't tuned for out of spec range.

Win96 will allow programming starting at 17.0000 to 174.0000 then jumps to 216.0025 through 550.0000 then jumps to 774.0000 to 868.9875. Ranges above 869 remain the same.

Should read 764.0000.

If the OP's radio is indeed doing what he says, then it is broken. Extended frequencies indeed start at 17 MHz.

Put a little more thought into your subject names and that could go a long way towards keeping your topics alive. Teasers that don't tell us anything about the topic just tend to piss people off.
