• 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 my PRO106 when i program the W X / S A M E & activate it by S T A N D B Y, then go back to scanning, then go back to W X / S A M E to check it, it is DEACTIVATED because i went back to scanning, why is this ? Thanks for the time, jbxfire

Basically the Pro-106 can work as a scanner OR a weather radio in SAME mode. This is by design so you don't miss an important weather alert code being transmitted by NOAA on the weather frequency while your scanner is off on another frequency where Officer Bob is sending a long VIN number using the phonetic alphabet ("William Nine George ..."). When in SAME mode, it remains on the weather channel (perhaps scanning among them if signal is lost). When in scan mode, it scans the programmed frequencies or predefined ranges, depending on what you've selected. It will not do both at the same time.
