    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:

Newbie here. Can my bc 246T pick up OPP, or, do I need a better scanner? Thanks, K

Just the analog beat repeater and mobile repeaters. You must be in close range.
You'll need a digital scanner to scan the digital fleetnet action.

Is it possible to get MOH off the 246 from the fleetnet? I have programmed my 246 with MOH and everything but for some reason it is setting the tower freq as FM instead of NFM and can't find a way to switch it in either ARC246 or the radio itself... Any suggestions?

Yes, you can listen to the MOH as well as the MTO road crews (Analog) on the BC246T radio.

However, even with the software, VHF trunking will have to be done in FM mode, rather than NFM which the system is.
Thanks just forgot to turn on the groups thats why it wasn't working... :D
