• 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:

Bought on 8/6, worked fine. Squelch went out 8/14, returned 8/15.

I have had a Pro-96 since 9/5/2003, no problem. I thought the Pro-2096 was the same design, and the bugs had been worked out, wrong. All of a sudden about midnight the Pro-2096 squelch was sounding loud on the MOT 25 freqs. I could not adjust it. The same held true on the conventional channels. Would not scan, due to the squelch was uncontrollable.

I think I will wait until the rebanding and see who gets it right.

I would like to see easier programming, and better talk group access. Plus a instant replay button.

If any one of a few components went bad you'd get that situation. Whatever bugs are worked out, components still go bad.
