    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:

396 / 996 settings for BALT

I've tweaked the AGC settings for digital ( Res time 0 --> -7, Ref gain 0 --> +3 ) and analog (Res time 0 --> -3, Ref gain 0 --> -2, Gn range 6 --> +11) on my 396s & 996s. I note a bit of improvement on Balt City 800 & a DRAMATIC improvement w/ Harford 800. Have never seen a bit of change on Balt Co 800 or Carroll Co 800 after the adjustment (not that gain control ever seemed to be an issue w/ monitoring those analog systems).

The above settings were suggested by people monitoring systems in multiple other areas of the country (see Uniden forum). Has anyone found a cluster of settings that seems to be a better overall compromise for monitoring PS systems specifically in the Balt metro area?
