    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 programmed in some radio stations with my 296D here in Michigan. They don't come in very good. For example I have 88.7 programmed under conventional, with the FM setting and it is choppy and very off and on. Why can't this Hi Tech digital scanner recieve simple radio station frequencies??

My reception was OK but not exceptional. Very location dependent. I suspect the antenna is not optimized for the FM broadcast band.
