• 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:

Can some one help? I have a bc296d with the apco p25 card installed and enabled but when I select a frequency that I know is p25 and NOT encrypted and was heard in the clear a few days ago but now all I hear is data noise. What has happened? Have I accidently changed some settings? When first heard ok the NFM would toggle between P25 and NFM and the conversation was loud and clear but now just stays on NFM and data noise.

May not be the issue your having but my 296 sometimes seems to lose communication with the P25 card and all I head is the digital signal (noise). I turn the radio off and re-seat (pull and reinsert) the card and that always fixes it.

If memory serves, wasn't there a firmware fix for this? And I *think* that the rebanding fix would also include this as well, although UPMan would be a better one to comment on that...Mike

Not quite but almost...that is the rebanding update, and I THINK - I'm not sure - that it would include the P25 card fix that was in a previous update. That's very much a UPMan question.
