• 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:

Pro-106 runs like a gem

For improved reception, the experts on here often emphasize two things: a better antenna, and a better antenna-location.

If you are using the PRO106 to primarily monitor 800 mHz TRSs, you might consider an antenna that does a better job in the 800 mHz range than the stock antenna. If you are inside a building, or in a location where your surroundings interfere with the signal, you might consider an exterior antenna, or one elevated in the room or attic.

If you can give more details about your situation and radio-system(s)-of-interest, others might be able to give you a more robust answer to your question.

Hope this helps,

My 106 runs like a gem and has not failed me yet. But I need to know is how can I get the EDACS to sound better?
Please define "sound better".
Is it a noisy signal? If so, the last poster gave you the answer.
If the audio is weak, but without noise, the dispatcher needs to speak louder.
If everyone on that system sounds weak, they need to boost the audio. Etc., etc., etc.
