• 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:

Lots of traffic on the Pro-197 scanner about 7:30 last night but receiving only static. I tried to listen in on both frequencies with an Icom T70 HT but heard nothing at all. This morning the scanner is still picking up signals on both frequencies every few minutes but no sound.

447.700 is a ham frequency. WVC is on 800 MHz trunked. Do you have the UCA trunk system programmed in your Pro-197?

Both these frequencies are in the ARES Standard load, for SoSL Fire and WVC Public Safety. I have the WVC trunked frequencies on the Pro-197 as well, and no problems with them.
