    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:

Setting control channel on UBCD396T

Hi Guys,

Is there a way to specify a control channel to be used when scanning a trunked system? My scanner keeps switching between the control channel I would like it to use (site near to me with very good reception) to another control channel for a site further away which means I get a bad signal. Is there any way to stop this from happening so that my scanner will just use the one control channel always?

Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.

The system will change control channel as it is programmed to do periodically. If you delete it you will get nothing.

On the other hand, if it is a different site, creating separate sites will work.
