• 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:

I have not been able to hear action on the following talkgroups 48 & 80.
I got 2 gether with a member of this board the other day and he mentioned that this system has several tower and for the most part is similcasted. He also mentioned that STEVE would probably be the man to ask.
When I visit inlaws in Aldershot I do not normally get either of the t/g's above, I do get most of the others and 112 Mtn/Dundas.
From my apartment in the city its the same thing.
We are moving to Burlington next week, I wonder which tower I will get and I wonder if there will be activity on 48 & 80.
Anyone else from the are who cannot get all the main PD t/g's on HPS?

Weird I am in downtown Hamilton and even when driving around I get all three districts. You should be able to pick up all three of their TG's without any problems.

I'll do more tests this week when we start to move stuff.
When I lived right downtown I did not have a problem.

I work in Burlington (QEW & Walkers) and listen to all three talkgroups as well.. I am not sure why you are having problems..

Scanner doofus I am :-(

Matt: I figured it out,
There has always been a glitch with the ARC software.
I did not have it set to C/C programming only even though this is how I set it up.
In bank 0 it gets set back to c/c only as off.
I manually set it up again and can now here it all.
Now on the Halton regions problem :O(
