• 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:

Question will the scanner pickup a P25 digital system if you had the frequencies programmed with a CTCSS tone or would this prevent the P25 signal from getting through to the scanner. Thanks

If I remember correctly, one of the glitches with the 796D is that the CTCSS has frequency priority. So, I would say "no" to your question. You might just remove the CTCSS, unless you are inundated with other comms, etc. This way you will receive both analog and digital transmissions.

Correct, if you program a CTCSS or DCS tone on a freq and set the squelch mode to Tone SQ, you can/will block out a P25 transmission.
