I suddenly lost Dekalb county digital. Radios and Antenna check out. Does anyone know if something is up with their system?

Thanks,

I don't hear anything on the RR Dekalb county georgia feed either...

For sure, DeKalb's system has been operating as usual today so it must be a problem with the scanner/feed.

Strange that my 2 separate 996's with separate antennas stopped receiving Dekalb. And the fact that the live feed here is quiet also. Do you get the same signal strength? I wonder if they have a new control channel that I missed?

Thanks for the reply.

Checking again this morning and I am getting a few things. Local PD's such as Decatur and Fire TAC 2. No Dekalb SO or PD dispatch and very little on other PD freqs.
I wonder if they have gone encrypted?
Anyone hearing normal PD traffic on Dekalb's system?

Maybe. But I do get some traffic so at least a secondary control is working. Still wonder if anyone hears normal volume of PD and SO traffic? I'm thinking they might be encrypting...

Have any banks locked out? You can also check by pressing HOLD on the control channel and you should see TGID's flashing across the screen.

It's definately not a scanner problem. I have 3 different scanners with 3 different antennas that were working fine. Noticed this on Tuesday the 10th. I still hear smaller municipalities like Chamblee and Dunwoody and I get tactical channels like fire and PD TAC-2. What I don't hear at all is the main fire dispatch, any SO traffic or the main PD dispatch.
I do hold on the control channel and see these groups mentioned above. I feel like they might have gone encrypted on the police/sherriff channels like Gwinnett has done.

Can anyone hear any of the groups that i am missing?

Thanks

Fortunately, GA
I'm picking up DeKalb on the 800 and the 106 in the shack. Yesterday on the 396XT mobile. No encryption.

I've had this happen before and when I went into the programming, I discovered that somehow the channel had become locked out. I didn't figure out "how" but it was definitely locked out. I've been hearing DeKalb Fire Dispatch just fine all week.

Dekalb Better

For some reason Dekalb is back. i had 2 996XT's and a 396 all stop receiving Dekalb SO and PD. Now everything is back. I have no idea unless something was interferring. Didn't make any changes so go figure.

Thanks for all the replies!

I drove around Dekalb this past Saturday and the system was flawless on my 396xt, one of the better P25 simulcast systems i have monitored. Adjust mode at 8, adjust level at 100 with the 396xt recent firmware update.
