• 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 would like to know if the Livonia PD uses wide or narrow edacs. I just can't pick them up even at work in Madison Hgts. Thank for any help.

I am not sure about wide or narrow edacs. However, I just I am over 20 miles away from Livonia, and receive it, but with relatively low modulation. If you have a PRO-96, you must remember to start with channel 001 rather than 000 on any given bank. I always forget this rule.

If you are hearing it with a Pro96, it _has_ to be wide. GRE's don't get narrow.

I am about 20 miles from Livonia and I can very rarely pick them up from here, so I could be wrong but I doubt you will pick them up from Madison Heights, unless of course you have a strong mounted antenna or something. I usually cannot pick them up well untill I am about 5 miles or so from any border of the city.

Anyone having problems picking up Livonia Edacs with their Pro96 lately? My unit keeps getting held on the control channel with audio. Pretty annoying.
