• 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:

Hey guys!

I have a uniden bcd536hp and works great except for the P25 phase 2 system around me.

I'm in Montreal and trying to listen to the Montreal Fire Department but I don't pick up anything. I used the Sentinel program to download the sites and id's off the database and updated the scanner, but still nothing.

Is there something I'm missing to do on Sentinel or any suggestions?

I see that the police are encrypted. Is it possible that their fire services joined the party as well.

Also note the statement in bold type from the system page link below. It appears they change control channels frequently.


The system change frequently of control channel red (c) The control channels marked blue (a) are the ones who have been control in the past. You better program all frequencies in your scanner

The FD is not encrypted and can listen to on an online player, but nothing come out of my scanner.

When using Sentinel ..I added the system "SERAM" to my favorites which added all the sites and frequencies from the DB and all the departments as well as the tg id's for each channel. Is there something else to fix or add to make it work?

It says id scanning on the scanner, but nothing is showing up.
