• 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:

On Page 51 it says:
1. Press WX to identify the weather station with the strongest signal for your location.
2. Press FUNC and then PROG to access the FIPS code entry table
3. Use the /\ or \/ keys to select the desired FIPS code storage location.
4. Use the numeric keys to enter the desired FIPS code and then pres ENT to store the code. Press TEXT to label the code entry with an alphanumeric text table if desired. Repeat the process for all FIPS codes you may wish to store.
5. Press L/OUT to lock out or enable specific FIPS entries.
6. Press WX to exit FIPS code entry table.
7. Press FUNC and then WX to initiate SAME (aka FIPS) standby. The scanner will monitor the selected weather station for alerts that match the FIPS codes that you entered. To exit SAME standby press FUNC and then WX.

This is one instance where battery power is superior to grid power. If your power is out, timely notice could be a concern. If violent weather is in the area or expected I trust my power.

I still think it makes more sense to purchase a dedicated weather radio. Using a scanner sort of defeats the purpose of the scanner since it can't use the SAME system and scan at the same time. You can set weather priority which will alert you when it receives the 1050hz tone but the SAME won't work.
