• 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:

This is similar to what I posted a few weeks ago and had a lot of good responses. My PRO-2096 had been decoding APCO-25 modulation on an intermittent basis, but this has stopped entirely and all I hear is noise on the digital channels. I have reset and initialized the scanner, tried all DSP versions 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4, all to no avail. I had been using DSP 1.4 when it WAS decoding. My PrO-96, on the other hand (programmed for the same system, Greensboro/Guilford County, NC) using DSP 1.4 decodes fine. Radio reference.com lists only one (1) site for the system. Could this be a radio failure that requires service? Radio is beyond warranty, and I'm concerned that Radio Shack repair will send it back with the same problem (or worse), say it's fixed, and charge me $100+.

Any ideas are appreciated!!
