    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:

Okay I did not know where to post this because, I did not want the RRPD coming after me for posting in GRE form to. So, this is my problem, I have a PSR 800 and I am trying to listen to St.Johns FL Fire/Rescue Before they went to the new system I could hear them with no problem ; now I hear nothing. I will now add somethings to give you a better idea:

Scanner- GRE PSR-800
Location" Jacksonville FL
Miles: 12 miles from county line
Antenna: up in attic

I have updated the data base for new freq but, I am not hearing anything. Can you give me any ideas?
Thanks

Hey Ron,

Hope all is well in JAX. I moved to Tallahassee, for work, and cannot help you directly.

One suggestion: make a separate Scan List and put in all of the trunked system's frequencies as conventional channels. Then scan just that Scan List - nothing else. They may have changed the control channel, you may have some interference from something else, etc. That will confirm which channels are active (today, right then) as control channels and will confirm that you can hear the system.

Additionally, you could modify the Trunked System and edit it and add all of the known voice and control channels.

When I was visiting back home in Oct/Nov I brought my psr-800 and I couldn't pick up anything by the airport (Eagle Creek) area). I had 1 system set all freq's in even with the 2 control channels. It had a problem keeping one CC locked in. So when I got back home I made 2 files. One for Control Channel and another file for the other Control Channel. For each file I took one CC out and had the rest of the Freq's in and did the same with the other.
