• 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:

Did this procedure once, how often is it required or how often have you done the alignment ?
I ran the procedure once. Like all radios, I suspect the oscillator is temperature sensitive, subject to drift over time, and has small production variations. I suspect that is the reason for the feature. My radio is inside, at 68 degrees. If I used outside on the patio all the time, I could see how I would have to run it more often.

Now I'm wondering what would happen if one of these "modern day" chips were place in a crystal oven.
