• 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:

I've read all the posts, tried all the known 'cures' and still have difficulty reducing/eliminating 'motorboating' on my 2096 (Tomkins Cty. NY - 800Mhz) Tried reverting back to older versions, AGC on/off, delays of various lengths, different antenna, etc..Is it time to sell it and get something that will decode better? (If there were clear receptions, my wife might let me leave it on :)

The good news is that you can sell your 2096 for over a hundred bucks and then use the cash to buy a new PSR-500 or similar model for only a hundred dollars or so more. They have really come down in price since their intro. While I like my PRO-96, the PSR-500 / PRO-106 is a far better performer. Especially with the motorboating issues.

Main reason I sold mine three years ago and got a 106:lol:
