• 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:

    VIPER Statewide Radio System Discussion

    It's fun and frustrating at the same time! Ok, I ran a search until I heard what sounded like an idling 18 wheeler on FQ: 856.7125 and a search of the FQ shows NCSHP with a location of Holly Ridge... I'm thinking this is the control channel as I'm now getting some chatter from the Holly Ridge...

    VIPER Statewide Radio System Discussion

    Newbie to digital scanning but I just got up and running with a BCD996P2. I'm located in Onslow County and I'm finding that the Viper database for my county is way out of date. Initially, I imported everything using the RR database import. This gave me absolute silence on the VIPER system using...

    Noobie with a quick question

    @N1GAW I skimmed through there and didn't see much about my region. I'm getting a ton of chatter now but it's all from TG's that aren't in the database, which is no surprise considering there are maybe 4-5 TG's for my entire county in the current database. I'm trying to figure out who and what...

    Noobie with a quick question

    Quick update. I went through the FCC licenses and found all of the NCSHP frequencies tied to HOLLY RIDGE and added them in under the trunked freq section in addition to what the RadioReference import had already added for my VIPER site and now I'm getting some activity!

    Noobie with a quick question

    New scanner arrived (Uniden Bearcar BCD996P3) and I was able to get it programmed but I'm not hearing a peep on the VIPER system. Onslow County/Jacksonville City Public Services programmed without issue and I can hear everything loud and clear North Carolina VIPER - I hear nothing. I'm located...

    Noobie with a quick question

    I'm in Onslow Co. I'll go back through and import those event channels. I see some for Statewide Event, then Statewide/Syswid (not sure what this is), then StatewideInterop. Anything interesting on those last two? Thanks! I was digging around and it looks like Arc XT will import these for...

    Noobie with a quick question

    I just ordered a Uniden BCD996P2 and I'm using FreeSCAN + RadioReference Premium to get it programmed. I imported the system I want to monitor for my county using the RadioReference Import but it doesn't look like it imported the control channels under the site's trunk fq. list, is this normal...

    questions about onslow

    I get no reception in the house, even with a beefy antenna. Luckily the previous owner was into scanners also and left behind his antenna thats up about 40ft high at the top of a tree. Had to repair the line where someone cut it, but its working great now and I can hear OCSD loud and clear...

    questions about onslow

    a little more info: the scanner is a Uniden BC248CLT (old and out dated, I know) and I get very little cell phone reception in the house. EMS dispatch comes through clear as day though! Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm trying to get a feed up and running.

    questions about onslow

    I've had my scanner put up for a while and decided to dust it off tonight... I used to have no problem picking up OCSD and OC Firenet, when I lived in Sneads Ferry, I've moved to Holly Ridge and can't seem to pick anything up other than EMS on 155.4000. From what I've read OCSD is still on...
