• 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:

Hello, I live here in Albany New York (Upstate) Anyways, I seem to have trouble with only one set of police freqs. I try to upload to the scanner... The Albany PD. There are 6 freqs. and I only get 4 of the 6? I have tried uploading many times and still only get 4 of them. I have tried to enter them manually and get a machine gun sound sometines in them and sometimes I get dispatch calls. I am using a radio shack pro 197 digital scanner and usb data cable with butel arc 500 software with a computer connected to cable.


Here are the Freqs. (856.21250 856.43750 857.21250 858.21250 859.21250 860.21250)


I know the first two are to ones that are active cause when I entered them in manually I was hearing the dispatch. I search the scanner bank before entering manually and didn't find the first two freqs. in the list above only the last four? am I doing something wrong? I am new to all this digital scanning but this is the first time I have had a problem.

Albany police use one of the City's trunked systems. The scanner you are attempting to program wants only the control channels. Details on the system can be found at
NY Motorola BB37

Further discussion relating to local radio systems should be continued in the New York State Forum.
