• 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:

Hi - I'm new to scanning and have a WS 1040. I am trying to scan the Phoenix Police Dept channels. I uploaded them to the scanner from RR, and as far as I can tell it is scanning, but I don't hear anything...not even static. So I am wondering if I uploaded something incompatible with my scanner...? I think the talk groups I have are in the 2990's, if this makes any sense. Anyone have any thoughts on steps I can take to figure out if I have the right groups... or if my scanner isn't set-up properly?? Thanks for any help!

It could be your location, here in Chandler we're too far from the towers to receive them - I miss the old days when they boomed right in.

The CC's you want are on Simulcast A, make sure that's what you've got in the scanner.

thank you - I got my uploads through PSRedit, through radioreference. In PSRedit I went to Import - Import from RR - Trunked Data - then I searched for Maricopa County, and in the list I found Regional Wireless Cooperative (RWC) which had all of the police precincts. This is what I uploaded. Is this not right...? I'm really in the dark on this, trying to feel my way through but it is frustrating! Where is Simulcast A and how do I upload it?!?
