• 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 go to Rocky Mount one or two times a week. I have my Pro 668 with an external roof mounted antenna. Does anyone else monitor Rocky Mount system? The system sometimes comes in full strength and other times cuts in and out while I am in the city mobile around. I'm just curious to see how other people are receiving Rocky Mount PD, fire, EMS etc. to determine if it might be something with my set up.

Are you driving when it cuts out or sitting still listening to full strength then all of a sudden it drops while sitting in the same spot?

Could be dead spots in the field. That would be my first thought. Their radios are good enough they don't have nearly as many dead spots as we do with scanners

They use alternating Control Channels as well, make sure you have all frequencies from the Database in your scanner.
Their Analog system is out of date and they have begun the process of switching over to a new Digital System., which is still in testing mode.
City Service have already switched over and have begun using the new system.
Police and Fire will be switching over soon but at an unknown date.
