    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'm having a problem with my PSR500 on SNACC wondering if anyone else has same issue. I keep getting open squelch on 853.7375 listening to the control channel noise? It's the cc for apex peak but I can't seem to stop the problem unless I delete it? I only program cc's for the snacc system so I don't want to delete it. Anyone here have this same problem?

I have that same problem with 859.9625 with my BCT-8 but not with two other radios (BCT-15, PSR500), strange.

Snacc Problem

Ok fixed it for now, I had the scanner on "Stationary" and changed to "Roam". Problem went away. Changed back to "Stationary" happened again. So I'll stay on "Roam" for now.

That's weird Don, I just checked my PSR500 and both city and county are set to Stationary and they work great for me all over the valley. Tried the setting Roam and the scanner went dead last night.

Long time since we compared files, send me a p500 to my email ok? Maybe I have something wrong?

i have a Uniden bearcat BC346XT Trunking scanner that i got 3 1/2 years ago at Amateur Electronics Supply on Polaris. They programmed it there and i had a problem a year later when SNACC rebanded. i had to have it reprogrammed. I never get noise on the control channel. It displays the frequencies when the talkgroup changes.

I am looking into a new scanner for in my vehicle. I have had one hardwired in my vehicles since 1993. Comes in handy when driving
