• 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:

Ham radio uses more than just analog to transmit. There is DMR, D-STAR and Yaesu Fusion. Maybe that's what you're hearing. Could be the digital buzz on the frequencies you are monitoring.

Any chance there's something near by that could be causing interference with your scanner? Something that could be emitting power?

N8IAA and Rt169Radio gave some great pointers. It could be a birdie, some local signal, or something that is digital.

I would suggest looking at the Radio Reference's Amateur Radio Frequency Database or use another online database like Repeater Book (https://www.repeaterbook.com/) to find what type of repeater you are picking up.

Good Luck.
