• 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 pro-99 has the option to program those in there with the freq, does it make a diff with recpetion ( i know it'll block out the other guys) but does it affect the reception of the freq to have that on?

YES. Quite often it will cut out intermod and other signals that would break the SQ. I'm in a HIGH RF area. I use PL/DPL tone on everything that has it. Otherwise my scanner would stay locked down with digital pagers and all kinds of junk.
