• 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:

OPP Problems

Listening on the Edgar Tower - have all the frequencies entered as per database - using a BC 796D which locks on the control channel - have entered talkgroups and am able to listen either by "ID scan" or by "ID list" - am able to listen to both conventional (MOH) and digital (OPP)

The problem is at times I can only one side of the conversation on digital - usually its dispatch that comes through but not always - I don't receive other calls that might interrupt (its not usually that busy) - often there is an extended period of silence and then dispatch comes in with a reply to a call by one of the cars which I haven't heard - these are not encryped transmissions as I have heard (not decoded) those on TG 9264

Any ideas?

Are you 100% sure you're listening to the Edgar control channel? Do you have all of the voice
frequencies programmed in? It sounds to me like you might be missing one or two...

I've had this happen when I program multiple CCs into one bank and come across a control channel that I am barely recieving and whose voice frequencies aren't programmed.

Double check your programming...
