• 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:

Was wondering if anyone could explain this. For the last few months while monitoring the Oshawa system I keep hearing the control channel noise. Seems to be random and lasts 30-45 seconds and is annoying to the point that I don't listen to it much. This is local stuff for me and was wondering if there is a way to stop it? Occurs on both my 250's as well as a 785D.

Have not had any episodes of what you are describing on my BC246T or my BCD996T. Are you seeing a talk group when this occurs. About 4 months ago Ajax and Pickering went to MOSCAD Dispatch via the trunk system, similar to Whitby and Oshawa, this did create a new talk group. MOSCAD sounds squaky??, like a cross between a dial up modem and a control channel.

Hope this helps...

That is exacly what it sounds like!
I didn't notice if a T.G came up or not and as luck would have it I have turned the bank back on and have yet to hear the noise. If in fact it is the T.G's your speaking of can they be deleated or will i loose transmissions?
Thanks for your help imcleish

Yes,

You can lock out the ID's associated with the MOSCAD Dispatch system. The 2 ID's are 2448 (Oshawa/Whitby) and 2512 (Ajax/Pickering), there is never any voice transmissions on these ID's. To not hear them either enter them into your programming and lock them out, or hit L/O when they appear on the sreen and they will be auto stored as locked out ID's. For reference here is the system: http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&sid=2396

Thanks again for the nudge in the right direction, sometimes get so busy that it didn't occur to me to look for updates to the db. I've also been locking out T.G's for some time due to the same issues with noise but these ones are 5 or 6 digits starting with either 70xxxx or 74xxxx (can't remember which) are these related also? I've been wondering if it was some kind of interference on the system due to location etc.

That has something to do with the system ID i think someone was telling me, none theless , they definitly arent talkgroups, just mostly interference crap
