• 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:

Could be that the owner of the feed moved closer to the broadcast location. Could be a firmware update to the owners radio, new antenna, etc. I would connect your HP-1 to Sentinel and update the Firmware and the Database.

If those don't work then perhaps try another antenna, or if you are mobile, try getting closer to the broadcast location or community. There are many reasons why you can have reception problems, it is really trial and error.

Im in Bay City and have programmed hundreds. If you bought the radio before January you are very likely not running the latest firmware that address' the multicast (multitower) system that Saginaw is.
Have you installed the sentinel software?

I'll send you a private message if you wanted to contact me in person.
