• 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:

There could be several issues and most can't be resolved without a new scanner, I'm afraid, since the Pro-90 is a rather old scanner. Some additional information about exactly what you're trying to get to work would be helpful though. If you could include the link (or links) to the system(s) in question better and more specific answers can probably be provided.

Based on some guess work, I suspect you're trying to pick up the ARMER system (Allied Radio Matrix for Emergency Response (ARMER) Trunking System, Various, Minnesota - Scanner Frequencies), which is digital and can't be picked up on your current scanner. One of the new digital scanners can probably pick it up since it appears to be standard P-25 trunking and encryption isn't being used, based on the database.
