• 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:

Improved SNACC

After some reading I found time to make some adjustments to my 536 for the snacc system. First I downloaded the beta firmware 1-11-20 from Uniden Upman. Its found in the uniden tech forums here. Then I used Sentinel to set all digital threshold modes to "manual" and a value of 8. Thats in the list editor, select a site example APEX then on the options tab for that site you'll see the boxes where to deselect auto and select manual and the value setting below that. I've noticed more catches on the scanner, I am getting Hospital and fire tacs. I hope this information helps you out?

I just did all this for my 436 and the audio has improved, a lot, and I'm getting more hospital traffic, but I don't think I'm getting all the fire traffic. Any ideas? BTW you can get the firmware update via Sentinal. I'm going to bump the threshold up to 10 and see what happens. Thanks this was a big help.

Check Service types

Check to make sure all service types are active. Fire Dispatch/Fire-tac/EMS-Dispatch/EMS-tac/hospital etc'. It seems to be the most overlooked setting on these 436/536 scanners.
