• 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:

Just received my BCD 396T.

while scanning some built in systems I see the scanner show the volume indicator 3 or four bars while scanning, but I do not hear volume.

But on the ones I programed in the scanner stops and I hear the volume.

Also Totally Off Topic: Seems the built in VIRGINIA system is not setup correctly ?

thanks

Are you talking about the signal strength meter? If your monitoring a trunked system the control channel has a signal, but the audio is not present.

If you press the scroll control once you will see the volume setting as a line.

I'm sure the frequency information in the preloaded systems are out of date for most of the systems included.

Thanks..

That is probably what I am seeing the strength meter, I will look in the manual again for a possible page that explains all the items that can be displayed.

Thanks..

While monitoring a trunked system the signal strength indicator constantly displays the control channel signal strength. "I only wish" that I could read at least 4 bars of signal strength every time that I am scanning the trunked systems around me.
