    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 all,

Recently, I have noticed my Pro-106 getting "choppy" and the signal is not as strong. I keep it in the same place and usually have no problem with it up until a couple days ago, now it's all over the place (while scanning trunking). I checked the screw inside the scanner that was supposedly loose on some of the models and it was fine. What could it be? The attenuator is off.

Thank you!

did you move a tv? did you get a new wireless internet router? did they reband? anyone in the jersey forums notice anything? does the radio system youre trying to monitor use alt control channels?

The thing is it's just one location that it doesn't work well anymore - it used to work fine there, now it doesn't. I have it on the ground now and it is fine...what could it be?

Like Whiskytango mentioned, any chance of a source of new interference in the house? (CRT computer monitors, cell phones, etc)

I didn't add anything new around the scanner - nothing should be interfering. It seems to be one location in my room now - used to be fine there. Could be a fluke thing...who knows...lol

Thanks for all your help!
