• 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 have a pro 106 scanner and it has started to stop on channels with no activity. The channels are on a Motorola type 2 smartzone system. They didn't do this until recently, and the channels are silent with no noise when it stops. Any ideas?

What system is it?
Does it stop on the same frequency every time and what is the frequency(s)?
Do you have a wildcard programmed in?
Does it show a talkgroup Id when it stops?

There is a:
Franklin Co Public Safety
Franklin County Public Safety Trunking System, Columbus, Ohio - Scanner Frequencies
And a:
Franklin Co Public Service:
Franklin County Public Service Trunking System, Columbus, Ohio - Scanner Frequencies

I assume your saying its the first one. Seems kind of strange to have two separate systems for the county since there are not many hills there. There is Sheriff on both systems. Write down the talkgroup(s) and frequency(s) it happens on and paste them here. If they are not in the frequency list on the systems page then your T-Tables are wrong.

The "Service" system is the older system and is used for Public Service, ae highway maintenance, etc. and is a backup for the safety system, that is why you see sheriff tgs.

OP - THIS SYSTEM RECENTLY REBANDED - HAVE YOU UPDATED YOUR PROGRAMMING?

ALSO BE SURE YOUR SQUELCH IS TURNED UP.

Have you applied the custom trunking tables for rebanding?

What you are seeing is one symptom of a rebanded system using the wrong trunking tables.
