• 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:

Yea the palmetto 800 but lexington simulcast is all I can pick up where I live butt I just want to make sure I do not need to change the settings in the scanner for the digital as described above I picked that site up very well and I just want to get the best quality sound out of the digital I've read some forums where people have changed their settings and got better audio quality on the digital but it depends on what site your own from what I understand? Or I can just leave it at default?

It wont hurt the scanner to test different values. I have mine set to 16 for one system but another works better with just over 100.

Your question was answered. It may have not been the answer you wanted but it was still answered. You will have to try different settings yourself. The new scanners do not work like what works for one will work for all. It depends on where you are, your signal level, and other local factors that are different for each person. The only way is if someone else was in the same house or car as you then the same setting might or might not work. Even in the Motorola radios the settings can vary from radio to radio.
