• 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 taking my first steps into the world of mil air... Using the 396 I am wondering what is the standard hold time to monitor rather than an open carrier

If you're talking about hold time after stopping, I usually set mine to 3 seconds for mil-air just because it gives me more time to look away from whatever I'm doing and look at the scanner and hit the hold button if necessary. I don't hear that much milair out here so I want to savor it!

Hope that helps. Be sure and read the wiki page if you haven't yet. And a good outside antenna helps.

I always set hold/delay time to 5. For some sessions I'd like it to HOLD on that channel unless I press something to resume the scan, but I don't think we can do that :(

(AND no-one be "helpful" and suggest pressing the hold button grr)
