• 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'm very new to posting to forums and this new bcd396xt uniden scanner (Tuesday). when listening to any of my channels there is a glitch in the sound, like a bland space, it's almost every 6 seconds...Any ideas on what I can do/or what it is?? It does it on the FM stations also..it's not interference, I've moved it all over the place :-(
Please help.
thanks
Barbmc

Welcome to the group. What you are describing sounds like priority or close-call sampling. This causes a space/interruption in what you are listening to. Go to menu and make sure your priority, weather priority, and close call priority are all off.

Here is a link to an easier to read manual that may help you out.
