    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 just picked up a BCD396T and my scanner will not pick up any talkgroups on the Western Wayne Mutual Aid System. My BC796D picks them up fine. The BCD396T picks up all other systems just fine. Please help and thanks in advance!!

Mine works

I have a 396, and listen to the Western Wayne system quite well.

Could be a programming issue.... I am not sure of the differences between your two scanners....

You could send him your .usd (system) file for Western Wayne. Maybe that would help?

Found out why it was not working. I was using pure P25 when I should have selected 800MHZ type 2. Whenever the system transmits I always see P25 on my BC796D, the tech told me to use the above noted system type and even if the system is P25 it will work. They could have mentioned that in the manual and saved me from pulling out my hair. Thanks to all who helped on this board!!!

Western Wayne is not a P25 system, but is a mixed mode system with a 3600 baud CC. MPSCS is a P25 system with a 9600 baud CC. The BC796D display of P25 is saying the voice is P25 digital, and not the system type. Look at the database here for MPSCS and you'll see it's different than Western Wayne. Other than MPSCS there aren't too many other P25 systems in Michigan.
