• 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:

On my 996xt when searching in the control channel mode only, when I press hold and then toggle Func and Disp to mode three the radio will decode most system id's by name if they are set up that way.

I note that the County Control channel 501.9125 and the Franklin system 477.400 both decode as Franklin.

Wonder why.

The Franklin site came on-line before the Somerset County main system did for normal use (they share the same site controller).

That's the simple fact of what caused Uniden to assign the 'Franklin' name to 8A27 in the firmware of the 396/996.
