• 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 am currently in the Tampa city limits near Chamberlain High School. I can hear the county's east system just fine. But not the west.

I have a GRE PSR-800. I have confirmed I have the latest RR database and the west system is in my scanner.

Is the west system hard to hear? Or is there something odd about it? I'm mostly interested in hearing TPD.

The West system can be a bit finicky for me to pick up, but that's probably because I'm out here in Thonotosassa. However, it comes in loud and clear from where my scanner stands. :)

Also, I've used my scanner at my grandmother's house and she's near Chamberlain. The West system comes in loud and clear from there.

Thank you for the replies. I'm back in Austin now. It must have been something with how I had my scanner programmed. I'll try again next visit. :)
