• 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:

Hanging Channels

Chris,

I was having the same problem with my 396T.

After some rereading of the firmware notes, it becomes apparent that this is not a "global" setting.

It has to be done for every single System File you have. If you have your radio set up like I do, you'll have several different System Files which you use to listen to different groups. Every System File needs to be changed. I had changed all but one System File and it constantly hung up.

The next time I see you at the fire house, I can explain it further. The notes that came with the firmware are not all that specific.

DECD does not have to be enabled for all systems programmed. I don't use the feature for Wilmington, Kent Co, PHL, Bucks Co, Montgomery Co, Burlington Co, Salem Co, NJSP Troop A South, Harford Co, or the Upper MD Eastern Shore Consortium. DECD is most useful for systems that have hanging repeaters. No need to use DECD if the system is tracked fine w/o it.

Hanging Frequencies

Dave,

You have a good point. I shouls have been more specific and mean any trunked New Castle System File.

Yes,
867.7375 is the freq in question.

I believe it is the claymont tower.
I haven't had time to get a 996 / 396 so I am just dealilng with it for now.


Last week 855.7125 was hanging on the NJSP South system. The channel was taken out of the rotation for a couple of days by their divcom and then returned with no problems.
