    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.

I notice the past 48 hrs that when scanning Washburn County, I hear the siren here in spooner sound off, however the scanner doesn't pick up the tone out or the reason for the tone, have they switched channels? I got my settings as per the db and don't know what's going on and really wish I could figure out how to fix this. Thanks.

Well I have been listening to 151.100 with both the north/south tones, and I normally hear the EMS get paged out and all, but now I don't hear anything. my only clue somebody been dispatched is to listen for the siren or hear when the EMS call the hospital to know when something comes across, Have these pagers been put to the narrowband "NFM" Cause I had it on FM, I hear the PD fine, the fire I don't hear. I have a pro-106 digital triple trunking scanner.

DOOF! I realized where my mistake was, I for some unknown reason kept thinking 151.100MHz, sorry!

Yep, Fire North, South, and Shell Lake are all 155.100. It is not Narrowband, it is still wideband (for now).
