• 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:

Okay, your other two posts say you are in Nashville, so I guess you were listening to the Nashville / Davidson County System. So if you are scanning in the bank and press the <MAN> button, does it stop on the control channel and make noise? If so does it still show it is picking up the correct system (SysID: 5d1d)? If so, what is the decode rate? Have you tried listening in OPEN mode? How about you put more in your query than a, "Hey, my radio doesn't hear anymore." kind of comment.

OK. My trouble seems to be that the scanner, will not scan. I hit MAN, and I can see the frequency, hit scan and the scanner stays on the same bank I hit MAN again and I see it is still on the same channel.

I am in Nashville. I have tried to reset, and re-loaded the pre-programmed V-Scanner Frequencies.

I can not even pick up anything on National Weather Service

Broken Speaker?
Try putting in manual mode on any channel and turn the volume up and squelch down, you should hear noise. If you do then go back to what I said earlier, when on the trunking bank and scanning, when you hit <MAN> do you hear the control channel (buzzzzzzz)? Also answer the other questions.
