    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:

While tracking a digital tower, my 996T shows full bars, but shows DATA instead of a voice.

Is there any way to lockout receiving DATA which seems to keep my scanner busy doing noting?

What system are you monitoring? P25 systems show DAT while locked into a control channel with no active (or unlocked) talkgroups. Is that what you are seeing? If so, this may be normal. If not, you may need to restate your question.
