• 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 have upgraded a 996, but haven't had much of a chance to make any kind of comparison.

I've updated my 996 to firmware 2.00.06. Can't give you a comparison, but York Co sounds mostly good from south Charlotte, stock antenna. I do notice a difference in audio level among various talk groups,and occasional distorted(encrypted?) audio but I have so far made no adjustments for digital monitoring.
