Default Forced narrowbanding on ce115

My software has now forced everything to narrowband as of 1-1-2013 and I am not able to change it. I am using the radio for monitoring only. What can I expect for audio on narrowband with the compander on, in relation to wideband setting for receive only??

What are you monitoring that wouldn't be narrow band now, except amateur radio and air band?

You do not need the compander. Disable it. As for the audio, now that every thing is/has/should be changed to narrow band, the audio will be just fine.

After a day a two you will not notice any differance.

Exactly the narrow band mandate went into effect Jan 1st, any agency using wide band now is risking fines.

Unless they were issued a waiver, extension by the FCC. Or are playing FEDERAL ROULETTE with their license. I have already found a few that have not switched yet, well at least it doesn't sound like it. Just by listening it is hard to tell!!!!

True because with a wide band scanner it is not very noticeable. Locally we have had issues with some audio quality even between radios being a little more quiet through the repeaters. Also some range and audio quality issues, but we have gotten them fixed and mostly where we should be.

Where is this in the software? I want to use my VX-454 for amateur use once I get my technician license but the software forced all my freqs to narrowband.

Nevermind. I just figured out that if you change the date on your computer, the CE115 software unlocks the modulation type and allows you to program frequencies as wideband!
