• 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 always miss the beginning of conversations on a conventinal analog channel when I scan my local digital system.

I have one Apco 25 system programmed into bank 1 with a hold time of zero. Bank 2, is one conventional frequency with a hold time of zero.

My Pro-96 is immediate when the conv channel goes active.

Why is the 396 so slow to respond to the conv channel? Is there another setting I don't know about?
