• 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'm trying to program 372.2 and it skips? I am unable to program it? Amyone have similar issues?

I just tried 372.2 in my VR-120 and had no problem. I tried it with the step set to AUTO and then tried it with the step set to 9. Took it both times with no problem.

You have a US version, which has portions of the spectrum blocked to prevent anyone from receiving cell images.

Thank You

Yes I have a US Version, I forgot about those blocked images! I usually try to purchase unblocked or Euro versions but the Vr120 was a US version.

I have a US version also. It is a great radio, but those blocked portions are no fun. I will be replacing mine with a Euro model shortly.
