• 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:

Is there a way to automatically program a pl tone to prevent bleed over from another agency? I tried doing a CT Search but nothing game up.......Any help would be greatly appreciated....

The use of PL can also help by keeping your speaker squelched when there is interference, as nothing in nature generates pl tones naturally. It won't reduce the interference, but just keep your receiver squelched until there is a transmission with the pl you programmed.

Note that pl is anything but "private" - that is a misnomer as all anyone has to do to monitor any frequency with pl is to just turn off the pl, or use a scanner that doesn't have it in the first place.

As for the Pro 96 I am not sure.

What is the difference between a PL Tone and a NAC code? I am trying to program the tones on P25 Digital frequencies, not conventional ones....
