• 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:

I need some information in linn co. cedar rapids iowa. I used to listen to local kirkwood community college. I found they switched to different frequencies and went to a digital system. When my scanner
stops on one of their new frequencies all i get a real strong buzzing or throbing noise. My question
is this does this mean kirkwood college is using encription or a new system. I have a bearcat bct996xt
trunk tracker. Or how to program my scanner. Could anyone please help me.

wobblyone, sorry for your scanning loss. It appears that the college has gone to DMR which means Mototrbo. There are no scanners that will receive this digital mode. So, there is no way to program the 996XT to hear the college.
This has happened due to the federal government requiring businesses to go narrow band on the frequencies (not digital), and opening the way for certain radio sales people to sell radios that the businesses didn't need.
HTH,
Larry
