• 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:

I am trying to listen to Fairborn, Ohio police. I can hear part of the conversation but not all of it. Is there something I am doing wrong or do I need other equipment. It used to work about a year or 18 months ago.


it also says Marcs-IP (P25)

I suggest you click the ! icon in the upper right corner and ask this be moved to the Ohio thread. Those with in-depth knowledge of this Ohio system may spend more time there, than on this page.

Sounds like your vhf frequencies are no longer in use and you need to program the appropriate sites of MARCS IP into your radio.

The 396xt is capable of receiving it, but it needs to be programmed in.

The may use those conventional channels for tactical or chit chat but everyone is on MARCS. I receive them very well when in the Greene County and Dayton areas many times a year. I start receiving Greene County just south of Jeffersonville.

I used a BCD396XT since 2006 until a couple years ago when the HP-2 came out. I also use a BCD436HP.
