• 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:

Hey guys, I'm very new to ham radio, just picked up a uv5r yesterday and am currently trying to listen to the Tecumseh opp repeater with no success. Was just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction on how to receive it if it's possible. Thanks

If its a BEAT or car repeater you should be able just enter in the freq 412.8875 as a carrier squelch freq and hear the transmissions.

Thanks! It's working now.

Did a factory reset and entered what you showed me, I must have messed something up in the settings. Looking forward to learning more about hams and getting licensed!

Since this is a two way radio the freq should be entered only as a RX freq and no TX freq. You can also add in a RX pl of 107.2 (1B).

Smitty94 be very careful with the dual band. a) they are not approved for use in Canada last I looked at the Baofeng's there was no IC approval for them.. b) if you don't turn off duplex you and transmit with them or someone can by mistake.

Personally I dont like the idea of using any type of transmit capable unit as a scanner. Its just too risky.

That makes no sense. How is a properly programmed, i.e. TX inhibited, TX capable radio too risky?
It all depends on if the user doesn't program in the TX side. Most are responsible enough not to but all it takes is one idiot.

Anyway we are wandering off topic. The member seems to be a responsible person and the question has been answered.
