    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:

Can anyone confirm if Danbury receives on the SDS 100? I've been in Danbury for a little while now today but I have not heard anything except the airport and the mall security Channel.

The way the sds100 handles a lot of the system's is strange. I see it individually scan through all of the towns in New Haven County, but Fairfield County it seems to just blow through only two of the systems? Is this a case of it simply scanning through the stuff faster? If I lock it on individually scroll through I do see all of Fairfield County towns and Departments listed so they are in the database.

Any insight would be appreciated.

I monitor Danbury PD on 460.550. I'm not familiar with the SD100 and if you could just program the frequencies you want to listen to.

I monitor Danbury frequently. No problem on my SDS 100, and in fact, Connecticut State Police seems to work better. I go to either Chick fil a on the border with Brookfield or over to Newtown Rd. Works great

Forgot to update this thread. I had a setting wrong, I have not actually gone for the Danbury area since adjusting it but no reason to think it will not work.

I can get it from Woodbury, although it's VERY week and almost every words inaudible. Danbury is pushing it for my QTH. I got Good Hill, Grassy Hill, top part of Sawpit/Lighthouse, and the Purchase area hills to my South and West which pretty much blocks anything from that direction. East though I'm clear...

Yeah I figured out what was wrong and now it works.
