    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:

I noticed when listening to EDACS on my BCD996T every once-in-a-while when a transmission is done I get the common EDACS " beep beep beep beep " sound, then I hear the squelch tail, and it finally goes back to the control channel and resumes normal operation. None of my other scanners have this problem (Uniden BC780XLT, BC796, BC246T, PRO-96), so I'm pretty certain it's not a programming/bad freq issue. Has anyone else had this happen on the 996?

Hmmmmm, the 396 had that problem too! A firmware update helped that considerably, but it still does it on occasion. Now it doesn't aggravate me as much since it doesn't happen so much LOL! The beeps would happen on an EDACS transmission that happened just after a Motorola digital transmission (in a different system).

It seems odd that the newer 996 would do that.

He says his 996 does it. On my 396 and 996 it is a millisecond of beep unless I have signal loss and then it can be the whole sequence of beeps.

Yeah, I meant to say 996, typo on my part.
