• 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:

Uniden BC785D? Project 25 Standard?

It will not work on systems with a 9600 baud control channel. It will work on 3600 baud Ohio MARCS for now, though!

Never heard of 3900 baud

That's a typo should be 3600.

you CAN "listen" to this....

I think. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

If you program just the frquencies for your area as conventional frequencies(not trunked) and do not program the control channel. You should hear everything. You will not get talkgroup ID's and will not be able to lock-out talkgroups. If anyone in your area uses encryption you will have to put up with the garbles, dogcatcher, street maint., everything.

It probably won't be very enjoyable if there are a lot of encrypted talkgroups in your area. It may get you by until you can come up with a scanner that will handle 9600 baud, though.

Actually the 785D as the audio radio and a Pro96 or Pro296 and the PRO96COMM software it will work on a 9600 system with LOTS of extra info tossed in too. :)
