• 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:

My LCD also generated a lot of noise until I played with the refresh rate and found one that didn't seem to produce as much noise.

I've had 2 different ViewSonic LCD monitors near the radios and none of them made noise.

Routers have been my biggest noise culprit. Only solution was to move it far away and have everything on wireless.

My issue is not my CRT monitor-that's fine-but my POS Speedtouch DSL modem spits out so much sh*t that it makes the radios useless.

My terayon router for where the ISP enters my house is in my personal server rack, and it still generates noise. If I go to my basement radio desk by my server rack, I can forget about Apco25 digital on my XTS3k/5k, or the digital scanners. Just seperate the router from the radio.

I actually moved one of my repeaters from the basement to the attic because of so much crap from the router, and this was with heliax coax, too.

Same here, isn't that bad now, thought LCD never that bad like CRT, I was scanning at about 2 meters of the CRT monitor of a friend, and the scanner was unusable. I wonder what component of the LCD causes the noise.

My router creates a lot of noise even if wireless is disabled. :(

My LCD has recently given me a load of noise around 280MHz. Switch the monitor off, the noise goes.

Then again the scanner was directly under the monitor :)
